DAVOS, Switzerland — Leaders in global health, international development, and humanitarian response will be critical participants in the conversations highlighted by the World Economic Forum’s theme for its annual Davos meeting: how to create a shared future in a fractured world. This year, there were some key takeaways and practical opportunities for partnership in the development space.
“Everyone, from corporate executives to heads of state, they’re talking SDGs,” Raj Kumar, Devex president and editor-in-chief, told Devex Senior Reporter Catherine Cheney in a conversation for Executive Members. “In terms of the big picture, it’s not like development is off in its own corner somewhere. It’s a theme, I feel like, in every discussion.”
