From Vulnerability to Resilience: Partnerships for Development
27th – 29th November 2014, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
The current era is marked by a range of inter-related vulnerabilities, encompassing issues around poverty, inequality, environmental degradation, disasters, climate change and food security. New and innovative approaches to mitigating these vulnerabilities seek to ensure greater resilience for communities and individuals in the Global South. At the same time, development assistance is currently at a crucial juncture, as focus shifts beyond the Millennium Development Goals towards a post 2015 agenda and new donors assume greater prominence. Taken together, these overlapping issues provide a variety of challenges and opportunities for the development community at large. The 2014 DevNet conference provided a forum for discussion and reflection on these pressing issues in an open and welcoming environment.
The conference was held at the Dunedin campus of the University of Otago, New Zealand’s oldest university.
