DCED-BEAM Seminar, Nairobi, 21st – 22nd February 2018

A new event with joint themes of results measurement (particularly around the Standard), and market systems development in cities.

The Donor Committee for Enterprise Development and the BEAM Exchange are pleased to organise a two-day event for policy makers, funders, practitioners of market systems development, and private sector development results measurement professionals.

The Seminar will feature a lively interactive programme drawing on practical field experience and insights from research and policy-makers. There will be plenty of space for networking and informal conversations.
