Event Banner Facebook

In developing countries, the potential for universities to contribute directly and substantively to improved development, growth and governance outcomes is arguably greatest. Despite that potential, higher education has received comparatively little support from the international development community over the past several decades – particularly in comparison to investments in primary education and basic health.

Watch the webcasts of the opening keynote by His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada on Day 1, and the three plenaries on Day 2 featuring The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie.
