2019 Global Development Conference
Bonn, 23.10.2019 bis 25.10.2019
Global Development Network (GDN), German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), the German Institute for Development Evaluation (DEval) the Bonn Alliance for Sustainability Research/ Innovation Campus Bonn (ICB), and the United Nations University - Institute for Environment and Human Security, under the auspices of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)
The Global Development Network (GDN) is hosting its 19th global development conference on the 23-25 October 2019, to facilitate the research-policy interface in pursuit of the SDGs. The conference will also mark GDN's 20th anniversary since its launch at the Global Development Conference in 1999. GDN has kept pace with changes in the development research landscape through its activities, and its conferences in Bonn, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, New Delhi, Dakar, St Petersburg, Beijing, Brisbane, Kuwait, Prague, Bogota, Budapest, Manila, Accra, Casablanca, and Lima. In Bonn, four interrelated conference themes will be discussed:
- From research to sustainable development action: interdisciplinary research, knowledge sharing, evidence brokering
- The global and shared challenges of sustainable development: migration, climate change, health, etc.
- Next frontier challenges: Big Data, AI, digital transformation
- Greater local ownership and sustainability: implications for research policies and funding
The programme will last two-and-a-half days, during which each of the themes will be addressed in 90-minute plenaries, followed by a more in-depth discussion of the various subthemes in parallel sessions, with panelists and papers selected through competitive calls. Other features will include special keynotes, awards, posters, and side events.
The global conference in Bonn will ask how to strengthen the capacity of the current system of development research to meet new development challenges and facilitate sustainability. It will showcase high level, truly inclusive evidence-based debates on current development challenges and priorities. It will share knowledge for development by highlighting innovative, high-quality, original and topical research on development, and providing developing and transition countries with a voice in shaping global policy debates on sustainable development.
