From August 3 to 5, 2011, around fifty preeminent development practitioners and thought leaders from the

public, private, and nonprofit sectors convened for the eighth annual Brookings Blum Roundtable in Aspen,

Colorado. Participants from around the globe exchanged ideas and concrete strategies for how to improve

international development cooperation and confront the challenges facing development assistance today.

By exploring how best to reframe and modernize global cooperation on development, the roundtable

serves to promote innovation and best practices, advance policy debates, and identify the most promising

pathways for reform.

Rather than summarize the conference proceedings, this report—like those from previous years—seeks

to weave together the exchanges and perspectives that emerged during the three-day discussion. It also

builds on last year’s in-depth examination of the fundamental reforms and changes necessary to improve

support for development.
