    The first half of this year has been a busy one for those working in international cooperation. Negotiations on a new global development framework are in full swing, a new crop of leaders is handling foreign affairs in France, Italy and elsewhere around the globe, and violence continues to threaten the livelihoods of people from Syria to Nigeria and beyond.

    Recap this year’s biggest headlines, appointments and events in global development in the latest digital edition of Devex Executive Review.

    The print edition of the Devex Executive Review is sent out to executives around the globe every quarter. It includes thought-provoking features and practical information to help decision-making at leading global development institutions.

    The DER’s summer 2014 edition features tips on NGO rebranding and attracting top talent in the field, as well as an analysis of the controversial Grand Inga dam project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It also carries forward #SheBuilds, a Devex campaign which, earlier this year, showcased women and girls as leaders in global development, ahead of the 20th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.
