I wanted to start and interactive discussion after attending the United Nations Civil Society conference in Salt Lake City, Utah last week. We all know that after 4 years, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) challenge is working to achieving the goals of Ending Extreme Poverty and Hunger in our world. But progress, as we all know, is NOT uniformly being achieved in countries around the world.
I came across a blog post by Darren Walker, My American Dream Score is 67. What’s yours? that I would like to urge readers of this post to take (even if you are not an American, I'm pretty sure you have heard of the "American Dream", and may have something similar in your country... What is Your Amiercan Dream Score?
I would like to ask readers who take the test to post your score, and provide us with a few sentences to tell us about your experiences and what your score is.... My Dream score was 49/100. I feel I was able to use hard work, education and having a good family life as a child to 'dream big' and succeed at what I have tried to do. I know I have been fortunate, and always try to 'give back'..
(thank you in advance, William

I am prepared for a 3 day summit between US and Mexican sister cities in Guadalajara (Feb 15-17), and looking for ways to bring new collaborations for development to the forefront. I wonder whether there is any interest from members of this platform to have online video discussions during the summit?
Contact me to schedule.
Policy makers are certainly busy working on ways forward in the future. How our organizations will be responding unfolding events which change the relevance of the programming already agreed upon, and indeed, being implemented, is important.
An online Professionals in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection (PHAP) webinar in December 2017, is a preface I would make to set the stage to guide any discussions that might follow https://phap.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=433#recording I posed a question (24:30) about how to generate and use 'big data' for strategically approaching the plan changes.
The unfolding humanitarian crisis in one of the most undeveloped regions left in this world - the area where Myanmar, Bangladesh and India come together - is certainly very complex, with both large scale refugee and stateless populations which have been driven from their homes, Villages and towns in the greater region certainly must contain high percentages of the 'bottom billion'. Infrastructure is poor, communications capabilities are worse, and conflict is ripe. How do we move forward finding durable solutions?
Do you have any ideas or suggestions for how we can improve the CDD community of practice? Let us know!

Hi C4D Family
I have just joined and still figuring out how things work here. Please bear with me.
For all my eight years of practice in the citizen sector, I have engaged in leadership development, election observation, baseline research, and so on. Like you can tell with my experience: I have been in many places but not necessarily "having both my hands on deck"
After doing some soul searching, I have chosen to dive into healthcare for some reasons I wont get into here. Currently, my interest is in health financing for developing economies which is generally wanting given the public investment done so far. (Note: This is a lay man's assessment but my desire is to make informed decisions based on credible data)
I ask that you guide me on what next steps I need to take as far as utilizing this platform is concerned. Any other help offered will be highly appreciated. My desire is to start by thoroughly studying a typical health system, learning the gaps thereof and how to make it better.
