- We will see a greater appreciation for the ways in which gender, race, and class impact development and well-being. Teams will embrace a more holistic perspective, and welcome a broader range of experiences. Inputs will become more diversified.
- Poverty will become globalized. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals have highlighted this, but COVID crippling the United States shows how real it is.
- Funders will become more flexible. Deep partnerships will be called for with aid organizations, rather than directives. Rapid response capabilities, notably shown by leading organizations already, will play an increasingly important role (USAID’s COVID response has shown an openness to partnering and learning, for instance).
