From climate change and urbanisation to resource scarcity and geopolitical shifts, our world is experiencing disruptive change that impacts how development work is planned and delivered.
At the same time, this development practice is also increasingly impacted by ‘internal disruptors’ such as the emergence of new donor nations, a growth in crowdsourcing and the rise of social enterprise.
How can donors, including the UK Department for International Development (DFID), prepare themselves for the disrupted future ahead? They could arguably start by learning from Southern NGOs — many of which already manage disruption in the here and now and are invaluable in building agency and achieving lasting change.
These slides summarise the findings from an IIED project to collate and share learning from 23 NGO leaders across Africa, Asia and Latin America on how to manage disruptive change.
