=mc held a thought leadership seminar in Geneva two weeks ago to discuss a major concern among all INGOs and UN Agencies: how to raise unrestricted income, especially now with governmental funds reducing.
Participants included senior figures from a number of key agencies including UNHCR, International HIV/AIDS Alliance, WWF, CARE International, IFRC, International Diabetes Federation, Terre des Hommes, The Global Fund and UNICEF.
