Register here. 

Join Big Tent and Unicef UK and explore with us how the government can deliver on its development manifesto at this anniversary event.

The questions we shall be asking include why would reaching the twin commitments to health and education be transformational? What progress – or missed opportunities – have there been in the past year? Why are summits like the G7 and COP26 so important? How can the UK Government make the most of them? What new opportunities does the recent FCDO merger present?
