thinkingdevelopment.org/" target="_blank">Thinking Development, the UCL IRDR and CDAC invite you to join us on January 17th for a unique live discussion connecting a London-based panel and audience with our Haitian interlocutors at CDAC Haiti.

Our diverse panel will critically examine the successes and failures of the international response to Haiti's disastrous earthquake of January 2010 with a view to informing recovery policy in 2011 and beyond.

The panel will pay particular attention to the role that communicating with the general Haitian public, and collaborating with local people and local government played over the past year, and to the role that communication and collaboration must have moving forward if Haiti is to recover successfully.

Imogen Wall, United Nations OCHA, Haiti
Mark Harvey, Director of Development, Internews Europe
François Grünewald, Executive Director, Groupe URD
Alex Joseph, Accountability officer, Save The Children, Haiti
