The pictures and videos on this page show the human side of development projects.

They illustrate the range of activities carried out during field trips on projects related to trade, agriculture, private sector development, poverty alleviation, industry case studies, growth areas, and more.

They also illustrate the importance of taking into account institutional and cultural differences among countries. For example, in developing value chains in Asia, clustering and networking occur in ways that are different from competitive bidding processes in Western countries.

Instead, there is a much greater attention give to cultivating business relationships in the context of mutually beneficial cost-sharing activities leading to common goals. As many of the photos on this page show, much of the success of projects are based the recognition of those and other differences.
