Shifting away from business as usual

Middle income countries, such as the Republic of Moldova, have seen rapid economic growth, however many of them encounter development challenges including persistent poverty, growing inequality, vulnerability to macro-economic shocks and to climate change. Against the rapidly changing international development backdrop and the emergence of new challenges, there is an opportunity to re-assess the role of development cooperation in the context of middle income countries. As these changes affect all countries across the globe, it becomes more important for development organizations to be able to respond to complex challenges with agile and flexible solutions, and to shift away from business as usual.
