We live in volatile, uncertain, and complex times. So, how do we navigate an age of uncertainty and complexity in global development? In this series, we explore the Future of Partos - the Dutch Development Cooperation Association that brings together nearly 110 Dutch Development NGOs.
In this episode together with Somaye Dehban we are going to talk about funding & financing for development aid. What do we mean with financing for development, what impact has COVID on financing for development, what is the current state of financing for development and how can we tap in to the new opportunities innovative finance instruments provide us with.
Somaye Dehban is the principal consultant at Your Funding Network, a fundraising consultancy which supports CSOs to diversify their funding resources and increase self-financing. She is also a PhD candidate at Rotterdam School of Management where the subject of her research is "Scaling the Impact of Cross-Sector Partnerships to Accelerate the Collective Progress towards 2030 Agenda". On a part-time basis, Somaye is the Partnership and Development Director of Volunteer Activists, a Dutch based CSO that supports civic engagement in the Middle East and Iran and an advisor on Nexus-Based Policy Approach.
