Conference 2021

The Defining Decade - An agenda for civil society-led development


As the international community grapples with the scale and complexity of issues arising from the pandemic, it is insufficient to ignore consequences and suffering that stretches beyond borders. COVID-19 has accelerated and reinforced the need for local civil society organisations to be at the heart of the change and solutions required. 

Momentum has been gathering both in the global community and here in Australia. Oceania Connect 2020 focused on the theme of “shift the power, raise the ambition”. ACFID Conference 2021 built on this momentum, moving past the ‘why’ and ‘what’ and focusing on the ‘how’.  
Acknowledging the complexity of the challenge before us, this conference seeks to distill how the INGO community can respond to the challenge ahead, transforming configurations of power and partnerships and placing local CSOs firmly in the focus.
