One development event
Few venues exist for developing country policymakers, activists and intellectuals to share their ideas with US audiences.
CGD organizes several major events annually to highlight the work of a key figure in international development. During 2006, for example, we hosted Nobel Peace Prize winner Norman Borlaug for a talk about the prospects for a Green Revolution in Africa. We also hosted Jeff Sachs for a discussion about his Millenium Villages. This gift will help support a similar event in the coming year.
