On May 31, 2018, nine ECODIT team members attended the annual Society for International Development-Washington (SID-W) conference in Washington, D.C. ECODIT was a Silver Sponsor of the conference, which brought together top development practitioners from the government, nonprofit, and private sectors to network, learn from each other, and exchange ideas.

The theme of the conference was “The Future of Development in a Rapidly Changing World.” ECODIT staff attended all panel sessions, which focused on such topics as private sector models of development, harnessing technological innovation to foster development, and requirements of the future international development workforce. Speakers included senior government officials, academics, and private sector leaders. In addition to attending the panel sessions, ECODIT was present at the Exhibition Hall where staff engaged with conference attendees about the firm’s work to improve management and use of water, energy, and environmental resources worldwide.

“ECODIT is committed to continuous learning,” said ECODIT Vice President of Quality, Learning, and Communications Roula Attar. “We are proud to sponsor the SID-W conference, and greatly value this opportunity to exchange ideas and best practices with colleagues throughout the development sector.”

ECODIT is a leading firm in the sector with 25 years of experience working with governments, businesses, and local communities to advance environmentally- and socially-responsible development around the world. The firm is an institutional member of SID-W.
