Renewables and Melanesia development: events in Sydney and Canberra

On Friday 4 December, two great events will feature Devpolicy speakers.

In Sydney, Matthew Dornan will be participating in a World Bank Praxis discussion on renewable energy in the Pacific. The panel is being filmed for television (we’ll share the broadcast details and the YouTube video afterwards for those who can’t make it along), but there are limited spaces available in the audience. The filming runs from 1pm to 2pm at the World Bank Offices in Martin Place. RSVP is necessary — contact

Update: For those who can’t make it along, the event will also be livestreamed. Watch here.

Here in Canberra, our friends at the ANU State, Society and Governance in Melanesia program will be hosting Duncan Green of Oxfam GB to discuss the recently released draft version of his most recent book How Change Happens. He will be joined by Devpolicy Research Fellow Grant Walton, who will discuss citizen activism as a driver of change for fighting corruption in PNG; and SSGM Research Fellow Colin Wiltshire, who worked on our PEPE project, who will discuss leadership as a driver of service delivery in PNG. The event will run from 10am to 11.30am, in Hedley Bull Theatre 2. Details here.
