Secretary of State for International Development Justine Greening speaks at the Bond Conference 2014

Cyan International attended the annual Bond Conference (10 November 2014) alongside over 900 delegates and a wide range of speakers including Jay Naidoo, Secretary of State Justine Greening and Bill Gates.

 

With the post-2015 development goals soon to emerge Cyan was encouraged by the desire for a coherent and global approach to poverty reduction. The continual need for organisations to listen to partners, to be accountable to our partners and beneficiaries, and ensure the effectiveness of our work was expressed throughout the conference.

 

Additionally Cyan was pleased to see development remaining high on the political agenda with the three major parties agreeing, in light of the upcoming election, their commitment for 0.7% of the UK national income to be spent on aid.
