MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
This afternoon was my big set-piece speech in the main conference hall – on international development of course!
We need to recognise that one of the big problems with effective foreign aid is that the most effective development projects are the small scale and local – like solar cookers.
But these small scale projects don’t scale up well to making a difference to a whole population, to a whole country or to a whole region.
So what is to be done?
