The United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) remains a key donor on the development landscape. Not only does it offer significant funding, but it also influences the donor funding practices of many other donors. Join us for the March Coffee Talk. This coffee date will give you valuable insights on DFID and help you better understand this donor. It will then enlighten you on opportunities that are emerging in the post Brexit and Covid -19 era. The session will also explore the likely impact of the UK exit from the EU as far as funding is concerned. If you don’t mind having Brexit blues, join us as we hunt for opportunities in the great land of the British.
