The link between economic development conventionally understood and environmental considerations is also explored, as well as the role of social factors such as inclusiveness, equity and gender.
Our two most recent Knowledge Sharing Series (KSS) events focused on addressing leadership skills on effective communication and stakeholder engagement. Teresa Erickson and Tim Ward were our speakers during the third KSS on "Communication Strategies for Innovative Sustainable Development and Climate Change Initiatives" last May. Meanwhile, Matthias Gelber and ADB's Charlotte Lapsansky presented during the fourth KSS on "Leadership and Communication Challenges for Climate Change Aspects of Development Projects" last week. Technical briefs and videos of these KSS events will be uploaded in our website soon.
