DCED Global Seminar

Sept. 30, 2024 – Oct. 3, 2024
Nairobi, Kenya

Are you interested in systemic approaches to achieve inclusive and enduring results from private sector development (PSD)? 

Join a conversation between international donors and experienced development practitioners at a global seminar on donor experiences and practical advice from programmes leading the (systemic) way in PSD and poverty reduction. 

The DCED, with the BEAM Exchange – its knowledge platform on market systems development (MSD), is a forum for networking and practical information exchange on PSD. Our previous events in Nairobi (2018), Lusaka (2016) and Bangkok (2014, 2012 and earlier) were attended by programmes at the leading edge of PSD. 

 Expected participants 

  • Donor agency/foundation staff: policy advisors, contracting officers (CORs / SROs), project managers and senior staff from headquarters, embassies and field offices. 
  • Implementer staff: intervention managers, team leaders and chiefs of party from PSD programmes and development finance institutions. 
  • Consultants: specialists and evaluators.
