TPI’s Senior Associate, Katie Fry Hester, will be representing TPI on the speaker panel during the afternoon session on multi-stakholder initiatives: More Than the Sum of Its Parts: Making Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives Work
To solve some of the world’s most pressing problems, the global development community has launched an ever-growing number of multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs) in recent decades – including the Better Than Cash Alliance, the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs, and the Alliance for Affordable Internet. But what makes MSIs succeed or fail, and how do we know if an MSI was the best choice to address the problem in the first place? This interactive discussion will use concrete examples of past, present, and potential future MSIs to help participants understand whether an MSI is the best-suited mechanism to address a problem and if so, how they can set it up for success.
The session will be moderated by Andrew Stern, Founder and Executive Director, Global Development Incubator (GDI), and speakers include:
Monica Ellis, CEO, Global Environment & Technology Foundation (GETF)
Katie Fry Hester, Senior Associate, The Partnering Initiative
Priya Jaisinghani, Director, Center for Global Solutions, U.S. Agency for International Development
