May 9-10, 2016: iDE Canada was thrilled to be part of the Canadian Association of International Development Professionals’ Annual Conference in Ottawa! Development professionals from across Canada came together to coordinate and share ideas, inspirations and best practices.
The big theme of the conference was the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Shaped by the United Nations last year, these Global Goals are helping to shape policies and coordinate organizations’ and individuals’ good work towards ending poverty, combating climate change and fighting injustice and inequality.
At iDE Canada we will contribute to a number of these Sustainable Development Goals, including No Poverty (#1), Zero Hunger (#2), Gender Equality (#5), Clean Water (#6) & Sanitation and Climate Action (#13). It is Canadian donors who will make it possible to achieve these inspirational and ambitious goals.
Dream big. End poverty!
