Hey folks


While not specifically on adaptive development, the talk we (CJL) are giving tomorrow at the OECD Anti-corruption forum asks:  REGISTER: Why every development practitioner needs to rethink their take on corruption (    It presupposes that one will have quality agility skills and political analysis to be effective and avoid exacerbating the conflict.  The framework is a work in progress so would love feedback and input.
