Our Events

Development Policy Forum events are structured as dialogues on principle. We employ three different formats. For individual focal topics, such as the post-2015 discussion, we organize event series over extended periods of time – with different formats, methods and target groups. These series are complemented as needed by online forums and virtual consultations we design and administer, creating a framework to prepare the ground for our events and help us follow-up as well.
The different formats, methods and target groups are always carefully selected to strengthen dialogue across all events and are based on the respective objectives we work with the client to define.
