Global Development: Competing Priorities in a Conflicted World

Get ready for an unparalleled intellectual and networking experience at the Council for International Development Annual Conference 2024.

As the pinnacle event for the international development and humanitarian aid sectors, our conference unites thought leaders, Pacific and global partners, NGOs, businesses, government entities, academic institutions, and civil society. Following the resounding success of our sold-out 2023 conference, CID anticipates another groundbreaking gathering of great minds and experiences.

This event is supported by partner sponsors and the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), promising a dynamic platform for forging new connections and partnerships.

Against the backdrop of an increasingly turbulent and complex world, marked by escalating conflicts, climate crises, and geopolitical tensions, this conference will tackle pressing questions to explore the complexities of navigating competing priorities in the humanitarian and development sector.

Join us as we delve into these critical issues, exploring opportunities and solutions to effectively navigate competing priorities and create meaningful change in an ever-conflicted world. With participation from international NGOs, multilateral organizations, government departments, businesses, social enterprises, academics, and media, this conference will foster collaboration and innovation on a global scale, promoting a better future for vulnerable communities worldwide.
