International cooperation has never been more needed, but the current system of “aid” is outdated and ineffective. Global Public Investment calls for a wholesale restructuring of the aid project, a totally new approach fit for the challenges of the 21st century - a new common framework for financing social, economic and environmental challenges in rich, poor, and middle-income countries alike.
In this episode we talk with Jonathan Glennie - the driving force behind the radical new approach to aid - Global Public Invesment. We will discuss the current challenges of the AID system, five paradigm shifts that we need to go through to create a new system to tackle global biggest challenges, and together explore how Global Public Investment could look like in practice.
Jonathan Glennie is a writer and researcher on international development and cooperation. He was the director of sustainable development research at Ipsos MORI, a visiting fellow at the International Development Institute at King's College London, and has worked at the Overseas Development Institute, Save the Children UK and Christian Aid. He is the author of The Trouble with Aid: Why Less Could Mean More for Africa and Aid, Growth and Poverty and his most recent book The Future of Aid - Global Public Invesment’.
