In the GWH Summer Series, ACFID’s Bridi Rice takes you inside the Canberra foreign policy community to ask one key question: what does increased poverty mean for Australian international affairs?
In the fifth of this six-part series, Bridi will be chatting with James Gilling about all things localisation, empowering local voices, and the future of Australian development.
James is Head of the Humanitarian, NGOs and Partnerships Division at the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, working to plan, oversee and implement Australia’s $500m commitment to meeting growing global humanitarian needs, as well as manage key partnerships with international and domestic NGOs. With over 30 years’ experience working in international development, James has worked as an economist with Oxford Policy Management, managed DFID’s Natural Resources office in Nigeria and was a researcher with the UK’s Natural Resources Institute. James brings the Department’s expertise at its best.
