DevCom Annual Meeting 2016- What do citizens today think and know about development? Have the migration crisis and security concerns changed their attitudes to foreign aid? And how can communicators help engage citizens, global leaders and businesses on the Sustainable Development Goals?
This Workshop took place just weeks after the UN Sustainable Development Summit and adoption of the SDGs. It was held on 23 October, back-to-back with the 2015 Annual Meeting of the OECD Development Communications Network (DevCom), which brings together the communication teams of bilateral and multilateral development organisations.
Created in 1988, the OECD Development Communication Network (DevCom) is the only international forum where donors discuss issues and co-ordinate their strategies to inform and influence public opinion to enhance awareness and public support for development co-operation.
DevCom provides a unique platform for the exchange of knowledge and lessons among development communication practitioners and the heads of communication and public information from DAC member agencies and ministries, as well as multilateral organisations and institutions.
Based on recent trends, many middle-income countries are not growing fast enough to reach average income levels in the OECD countries by 2050. This includes several lower middle-income countries – such as India, Indonesia and Viet Nam – but also countries in the upper middle-income bracket, such as Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and South Africa, said OECD Secretary-General.
