Participatory methods aren't new, but could new ICT tools make them more effective? Join the debate, Thursday, 21 February
Jacobo Quintanilla, director of humanitarian information projects for Internews, will be speaking on a panel - Beneficiaries-led development: can assistance be crowdsourced? - sponsored by The Guardian, to discuss how agencies, governments and donors can better use the tools available to adopt a community-centered approach to development. The panel will also examine if beneficiaries-led development is even possible and if so, what reforms are needed in the sector to ensure it works.
Join in the discussion on Thursday, February 21 at 1pm GMT, to reflect on the changing approaches to participation and advances in crowdsourcing technologies.
