Publication Date: 09/20/07
Description:
Timothy Nourse, Microfinance and Enterprise Development Specialist, Academy for Educational DevelopmentIn post-conflict countries, development actors aim to rapidly transition from strengthening livelihoods at the household level to rebuilding economies. While sound in theory, putting this strategy into practice is challenged by a host of factors, including uncoordinated donor action, unqualified relief staff, and local government meddling. Based on his work in post-conflict countries such as Sierra Leone, Sudan, Palestine and Afghanistan, Mr. Nourse will discuss the practical challenges of moving from grant programs to sustainable microfinance and relief oriented direct assistance to facilitating market development.
