Please join the Center for Global Development (CGD) for a conversation featuring Representative Joaquin Castro—Chairman of the new House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on International Development, International Organizations and Global Corporate Social Impact—on US development policy priorities and challenges facing the 117th Congress.
Amid a global pandemic and unfolding economic crisis threatening to reverse development progress and exacerbate inequality, the creation of the new development-focused congressional subcommittee comes at a pivotal time—promising increased visibility and attention on an important set of global issues.
Representative Castro will speak with CGD Executive Vice President and Senior Fellow Amanda Glassman about his vision for the subcommittee, the importance of protecting hard-won development gains, and how to advance smart, innovative, and evidence-based development policy.
