      Points resonating with me are:  a) include private sector better - creating understanding of the PPP processes; b) getting new players involved with conflict states important; c) engaging citizens in the development and humanitarian assistance activities is more possible than ever before due to the internet, cell phone technologies and vast array of online platforms; and d) lots of work needed to explain positive aspects of globalization and its processes, especially to people afraid of losing jobs to build trust in governments.
