On 23 April, Dóchas hosted a conference entitled New Voices in Development, which brought together established and emerging development organisations with southern voices and representatives of the private sector, philanthropy and academia. The aim of the conference was to provide a forum for discussion between these groups to encourage cooperation between them and improve their collective understanding of what works.
