29 January 2015 12:00:00PM (+0100)
WHERE: NTNU, Trondheim, Norway
Have you ever wondered about if aid actually helps the people who get it? Whether the money reaches its destination, whether the causes are effective and whether we will ever be able to eradicate extreme poverty?
Since the beginning of the 1950s the world's rich countries used approximately 2000 billion dollars in aid to poor countries. Norway alone spends more than 30 billion annually. Did it really have an effect?
LECTURE: - Kristin Clemet, leader in Civita and Norfund - Kim Gabrelli, political advisor to UNICEF Norway - Peter Jourdan, Programme Manager Imperial College London and SCI (Schistosomiasis Control Initiative)
