Join CID for our Road to GEM Speaker Series 

Harvard University’s Center for International Development hosts important conversations with practitioners, researchers, and change-makers during the months leading up to the annual Global Empowerment Meeting (GEM). CID's Global Empowerment Meeting brings together change-makers from academia, government, business, civil society, and philanthropy to share insights and develop action-focused strategies and solutions. The focus of GEM23 is climate change, with a particular lens on the challenges and opportunities facing developing nations.

Road to GEM programming provides opportunities to learn from leaders on the frontlines of climate-related work in developing countries. All events are open to the public.
