‘Smart Development Through Local Leadership: MCC’s Approach to Country Ownership’
Wednesday, February 18, 2009 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am
You are invited to a public presentation and discussion on country ownership.
“Country ownership” has been broadly embraced by the international donor community as a critical element of sustainable development. However, there is no consensus on what “ownership” means, nor are there guidelines for concrete action. Oxfam America, as a part of its efforts to promote Smart Development, will propose its framework for better understanding ownership. MCC will introduce a new paper on the topic which provides a definition of ownership and addresses the challenges of its implementation in practice.
