On September 22, 2016, The Hunger Project helped put on “Putting People First: Community-led Development” hosted by the Movement for Community-led Development during The United Nations General Assembly’s annual fall meetings.
The event featured leaders from the UN and Civil Civil Society describing the growing momentum for community-led development as the best pathway to achieving the integrated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The focus of the panel and interactive discussion was to share the progress being made in the global expansion of community-led development. The large-scale initiatives to expand were discussed, and the panelists empowered attendees to champion their own efforts in community-led development.
