2011 Global Development Awards and Medals Competition


The Global Development Awards and Medals Competition is an innovative award scheme supporting research and development projects launched by Global Development Network (GDN) with support from the Ministry of Finance, Government of Japan, and other donors. Winners are chosen by an eminent jury at GDN’s Annual Conference; an event attended by over 500 practitioners in the field of development to whom the finalists present their proposals/papers. In Europe, the awards are adressed mainly to researchers and non-governmental organisations from Central and Eastern European countries.
