Getting Development Right: Fresh and Frank Voices in Ending Poverty


This publication is a collection of some of our most thought-provoking blog posts, all neatly encased together in an electronic format ready for your contemplation. The e-book includes a range of posts – questioning development practice, reflecting on personal experiences and proposing alternative ways of thinking. It features topics such as mental health and diversity in aid work. One author attempts to deconstruct the notion of the ever-elusive ‘field’. As well as offering some decent doses of myth-busting and useful advice, crucially, each article reflects what we’re fundamentally all about – by focusing on the question, ‘why?’
