Network Council

The Network Council is the governance body for the running of the CDKN Alliance. The Council acts in close consultation with PwC, as the contracting organisation. The PwC Engagement Partner sits on the Network Council. A ‘dual key’ arrangement is foreseen, whereby PwC and the Network Council will agree on items within the remit of the Network Council. The Council approves the draft strategy for the Network and draft medium-term and annual work programmes, including financial plans. The Council maintains only a light touch oversight on operations and management activity – guided by the Chair – being informed but not taking responsibility for operational matters. Current Network Council members are:

  • Simon Maxwell – Independent, Executive Chair
  • Adil Najam – Chair, LEAD Pakistan
  • Anna Locke –  Acting Head of Climate Programme, Overseas Development Institute
  • Paul George – Partner, PwC
  • Emma Cox – Partner, PwC
  • Sam Bickersteth – CEO, CDKN. PwC
  • Stefan Raubenheimer – Director, SouthSouthNorth
  • Yolanda Kakabadse – Senior Advisor, Fundacion Futuro Latinoamericano
