“The forgotten empowerment in aid, and how to cure it with ‘fact-based’ dialogue” Mar 2016 Jakarta, Indonesia

In 35 イベント, 9 ENGLISH, 901 Upcoming trainings/ events by master



1.Introduction to Fact-based dialogue

In this provocative talk, the two authors Nobuaki Wada and Toyokazu Nakata, reveal how most well-intentioned aid programs have failed in empowering people in developing countries, and propose that the dialogue based on simple ‘fact questions’ can change the whole framework of donor-recipient relationship in aid programs and encourage local people’s initiative to solve their own problems.
Through their past “bitter” experiences in the field, Wada and Nakata reflect on their own misconceptions of community development and share how they have developed a new and unique way of facilitation for establishing a true empowerment.


Nobuaki Wada (Director of Overseas Projects of Mura no Mirai)
