This report of the GDI Advisory Group Meeting, which took place at The Carter Center on June 6, 1996, chronicles the thoughts and ideas put forth by the world's leading development practitioners on the effort in Guyana. It also includes a discussion of lessons learned about this alternative methodology that have become increasingly clear since the National Development Strategy was released in January 1997.

Chaired by President Carter and attended by the president, finance minister, and opposition leader of Guyana as well as development ministers, aid agency representatives, and leaders from the private sector and civil society, the 1996 forum reviewed the results of the initiative's efforts in Guyana to facilitate the participatory preparation of a National Development Strategy. Participants at the meetings called the Guyana effort a potential new model of development cooperation emphasizing the principles of ownership, participation, and international partnership.
