in Development, Saturday Morning Reading

Saturday Morning Reading #2

Here’s an early and seasonal edition of Saturday morning reading (because I’ll be on the beach tomorrow!). I’ve put it in order from satire to sentimental. Enjoy!

1) The 12 Days of Christmas – Post-2015 edition!
“Three rambling summits,
Two dozen speeches,
And confusion on in-equal-ityyyyyy…”

2) Santa announces IATI commitment.

“Santa notably scored highly on participation, with his letter-based consultation method being seen as a sector-leading beneficiary feedback mechanism that others could learn from.”

3) Two ways to make the world a better place

Either be like Jean Drèze, or be like CGD according to Angus Deaton.

4) The Paradoxical Commandments by Kent M. Keith
“People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.”

Merry Christmas everyone!
