Le vent du changement souffle sur l’aide au développement #windsofchange

Par défaut

Tout est parti de ce tweet (du moins pour ma part) :“Ah que voilà une très bonne question soulevée !!! RT @intldogooder The World Bank as a Foundation? [cont.] via @CGDevThe World Bank as a Foundation? Why I’m Scratching My Head Over the World Bank’s New Vision… | Todd Moss | Global Development: Views from the Center

Et ensuite de cet  article lu sur le site de How Matters World Bank and IMF, Don’t Just Develop Capacity – Unleash It

The World Bank/IMF Spring Meetings start this week. My colleague, Tom Grubisich and I have put together a panel during the Civil Society Policy Forum entitled, “Winds of Change: Will it bring a new development paradigm?” It will take place on Friday, April 15th at 2pm EST (6pm GMT). The session overview, webcast links, and bios of participants (an exciting group if I do say so!) are featured below.

A livestream of the roundtable will be available (at high and lower speeds) at the links below:

Voici donc quelques tweets que j’ai relevés à propos de ce webcast…

InnovateAfrica RT @intldogooder #WindsofChange webcast Fri 15 April 2pm EST features @innovateafrica @jselanikio@jhecklinger

wheresatticus RT @Andy_in_Pgh: Heather: The end goal of aid should be capacity building toward self-sufficiency. #windsofchange

ElizaTalks @InnovateAfrica You’re welcome! Was an interesting discussion. Do wonder how much it’ll change existing paradigm though.#windsofchange

prettyzoely The World Bank and IMF are meeting in Washington — why don’t we care anymore?…#windsofchange

mainakjas @ishanbose31 Got bored of the usual facebook etc! In btw, twitter has changed a lot in a year. #windsofchange

ungaro Uh-ohhh. RT @MarcoYuriCOMM: #windsofchange development develops itself. We need2ask ourslves difficult questns at individ. & community level

GlobalGiving Don’t forget to tune in to @intldogooder ‘s #windsofchange webcast feat’ng @jhecklinger – starting at 6pm GMT:

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @intldogooder thank you all present and online and continue this important conversation clap clap clap

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @heather steping back and learn from our previous experiences.

Andy_in_Pgh Aid indicators should be more intuitive. #windsofchange

Andy_in_Pgh  It’s not all about us. We don’t do development, we facilitate in on the periphery #windsofchange

Rachael_Quinn « We need to guard against this idea that it is all about us » #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange development develops itself. We need to ask ourselves difficult questions at individual and community level

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange the concept of time is important and IMPACT takes time.

MarcoYuriCOMM#windsofchange we need different points of experimentation and it is important to have that

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @jhecklinger putting money on the table than taking it off… no one has the monopoly on social impact!

Andy_in_Pgh John: No one has a monopoly on social impact. We need to level the playing field #windsofchange

Andy_in_Pgh Closing statements #windsofchange

Rachael_Quinn Linking government and civil society is important – its the gov’t that is receiving the money in the first place. #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange capacity development what does ‘development’ mean at the different levels will better direct our aid work

Andy_in_Pgh Heather: The end goal of aid should be capacity building toward self-sufficiency. #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM  #windsofchange @heather we need 2 define what development is about r w looking only about delilvery or about capacity to selfdelivery n time

Andy_in_Pgh Civil society orgs need a voice in the decisions that affect them #windsofchange

Andy_in_Pgh One of WB’s key problems: perverse bureaucratic incentives #windsofchange

Rachael_Quinn The incentive structure of the WB is not designed for facilitating these smaller initiatives #windsofchange

Rachael_Quinn Basically in terms of overcoming the power struggle with those who have the money (donors) and those that know best (CS)? #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @heather : be optimistic!!

Rachael_Quinn How can we put into practice ideas of directly empowering civil society when dealing with the big NGOs & IOs of the world? #windsofchange

Andy_in_Pgh Heather: Governance is not the same as civil society in dev #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange to know what can b done differently you have to ask them when assisting them

Andy_in_Pgh How do you help the poor? Ask them! #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @dalyasp @heather local decision making about how funding is used!

Andy_in_Pgh Can the World Bank do small-scale? Should it? #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange tema interesantisimo cambiar approach d ayuda a desarrollo fortaleciendo estructuras locales y terminar con bottomup approach

Rachael_Quinn Appreciate the blunt honesty « The bottom line: we don’t know how to do development, no one knows how to do development » #windsofchange

adumbthomson there is no such thing as an optimal development paradigm. Awesome. #windsofchange

Andy_in_Pgh « None of us knows how to do development. » #windsofchange

Andy_in_Pgh Grant aid isn’t always the best way to fund community-level development #windsofchange

Rachael_Quinn Building an info forum for grassroots movements & local org could really bolster the great things these orgs do #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @jhecklinger when people realise that their feedback drives decisions that concern them is when amazing things start 2 happen

Andy_in_Pgh Real-time feedback mechanisms for grassroots orgs could promote better aid #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @jhecklinger having the beneficiaries’ feedback drives decision, real time data drives real time decisions

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @salome invest in the capacity of grass root organisations, there are intangible ways of capacity that may escape our eyes

Andy_in_Pgh « Both process AND results matter in development » #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @heather humility and relaxation. Aid has a limited effect in development.

Rachael_Quinn seems so common sensical, yet still very much lacking: « we need to listen to those on the receiving end of the aid » #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @heather help supporting capacities and their effects int he long term not only focusing in the specific projects

adumbthomson if mid-level execs don’t get it, the company will fail. in this case the projects fail. don’t just monitor; evaluate too #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @heather donors should create an enablling environment, aid is still too project focused

Rachael_Quinn One of the biggest problems: « they created a project society and not a civil society » #windsofchange

Andy_in_Pgh There is a need for civil society (as opposed to project society) #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM @intldogooder #windsofchange practical advise what are the things institituions should think about?

Andy_in_Pgh « Donors, World Bank, INGOs can create an enabling environment for civil society in all its forms » #windsofchange

GHETS Rather than focusing on what we got right, we should focus on what we got wrong #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @TomGrubisich what happens after everyone goes home? we should worry about what we missed, what we don’t know!

Andy_in_Pgh « We also need to focus on the Road FROM Busan » #windsofchange

Andy_in_Pgh « Rather than focusing on what we got right, we should focus on what we got wrong » #windsofchange

Andy_in_Pgh The process of achieving results in development is not being evaluated enough #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange the process of development is often not necessarily valued and emphasized, there is more concentration in processes

adumbthomson tuned into the World Bank #windsofchange webcast. smart people. hope the bank is actually listening

ElizaTalks #windsofchange: Donors lack vision about the potential in mobile technology. I like! >Necessity the mother of invention #m4d

MarcoYuriCOMM  #windsofchange donors feel disconnected from those whom receive aid

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @salome how, why for whom are we doing this? that is the question

GHETS aid is product focused not processed focused. not looking at the who, what, how… #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM risk tolerance in your bureaucratic processes #windsofchange @jhecklinger

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @jhecklinger over and over we see bunches of orgs able to get online and raise money & connections to get things done

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @jhecklinger it is not about someone else deciding what needs 2 be done

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @jhecklinger negative aspects of development paradigm is frustration

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @intldogooder : what are the negative aspects of development paradigm?

MarcoYuriCOMM  #windsofchange @heather new ways of thinking is requiered, the future is there

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange we need 2 move from preplanned kind of model, let people take things in2 their own hands, it implies big change in thingking

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange @heather: traditional donors work in very lineal methodologies, & many changes are NOT predictible see the Middle East

MarcoYuriCOMM @Heather: Capacity emergence is to build on people strengths, realize what they have, take advantage of opportunities #windsofchange

ElizaTalks Joel Selanikio @datadyne: Problem with NGOs is that they have no business model for developing #tech beyond donor funding #windsofchange

GHETS Pleasantly surprised that Global Fund For Children promotes « Knowledge Network Workshops » – just like @GHETS! #windsofchange

GHETS Happening now! #windsofchange webcast w @intldogooder#worldbank #aid #globaldev

ElizaTalks Lemme: 5 or 6yr « long-term » grant. How often is a sustainable difference made in 6 years. That said, better than usual 2-3 #windsofchange

MarcoYuriCOMM Giving more capability to the people on the ground #windsofchange helping them raise money to achieve their objectives

MarcoYuriCOMM Turn networks into donor networks #windsofchange

ElizaTalks Salome Lemma @GFCnews: Grassroot community based orgs best placed to support their own communities #windsofchange #aid

MarcoYuriCOMM #windsofchange started @intldogooder

viewfromthecave Brown – often a gap between what the local people want to focus on and the available funding #windsofchange
