This online magazine is a great resource and always looking for new authors!

Digital Development Debates is an online magazine published by the German development agency, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). Their Development Policy Forum is in charge of this publication with each issue focusing on a prevailing topic from the development policy sector. To use their own words,

“Digital Development Debates is an interdisciplinary format that takes advantage of every interactive opportunity: we want to encourage conversation between readers and authors. Our goal is to create a lively platform where experts, journalists, students, business people and other interested parties can continue to expand the existing pool of information and with room for debate – as the name Digital Development Debates promises.”

This magazine is great to get an idea of current trends and challenges and it is always a good read. They even offer the opportunity to publish your own articles, which I did in issue #18 on cities. You can read my article on air pollution in Delhi here.

Enjoy browsing!

Edit 2017: Digital Development Debates has been discontinued, but you can still browse old content. Urbanet is a great replacement – go straight to my author’s profile to see my articles there!
