Devex: Q&A: Oxfam advisor urges NGOs to grow ‘curious’

April 6, 2017 — Devex highlights The Asia Foundation’s partnership with Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) in a Q&A with senior strategic advisor for Oxfam Great Britain Duncan Green:

The Asia Foundation, for example, received funding from DFAT to find academics to accompany their advocacy programs in 14 countries. The idea was that academics would be a fly on the wall and come in every few months to provide feedback on how the work was progressing. And it has worked — they have found common ground and a rhythm. Real-time accompaniment has real potential and it is something we are looking at more in Oxfam.
