Successes and Failures in International Development

Christina has had the diverse and incredibly rewarding experience of starting education initiatives in Southeastern China; the West Bank; Nairobi, Kenya; and in her home state of Georgia. (Go Dawgs!) Her field experience combined with a bird’s-eye view of over 2000 development projects, or “Commitments to Action,” at The Clinton Global Initiative has taught Christina a very distinct lesson: We have the tools to solve global poverty, but it is the international will and the way we attempt to address problems that hold us back. Christina will talk through examples of the successes and failures in international development, and propose ways for people to connect with and support efforts that are effectively addressing global poverty.
