The 2012-2013 SID Lecture Series consisted of part one More Than 50 Years of ODA: Lessons Learned and New Approaches, and part two The Private Sector and Development: a Sustainable Future.

Part I reflected on the lessons learned from more than 50 years of official development assistance (ODA). In a rapidly changing world of international cooperation, the development architecture is more multi-coloured and complex than ever before. What will a new approach to development look like? And how can it be shaped?

In part II the focus shifted towards the role of the private sector in sustainable development and growth, moving from corporate social responsibility, the human dimension of private investments to the leverage businesses have in the countries they operate.

All the summary reports of the ten lectures are compiled in one document. You can find the compilation here.
