Reply Sharon Bell says: October 21, 2016 at 1:39 am Certainly easier to engage with this version of a #globaldev super hero than the UN’s Wonder Woman 😉 . Reply Yoma says: October 21, 2016 at 8:27 am I’m in! Love it. Reply Chris says: October 25, 2016 at 6:44 pm Love this – but applicable to just about all areas of development it seems to me, not just economic development! These kinds of principles seem particularly ideal to address some of the issues you raised in your recent post about professional advocacy (http://oxfamblogs.org/fp2p/is-advocacy-becoming-too-professional-a-conversation-with-world-vision-and-save-the-children/). Can we re-write it as an international development advocacy manifesto as well? 😉 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
