International Development Week (IDW), launched by Global Affairs Canada, is an annual week dedicated to celebrating Canadians' contributions to international development efforts that are creating a more peaceful, inclusive, and prosperous world. This year's IDW ran from February 5 to 11, 2023 and focused on "Go for the Goals", a nod to Canadians' efforts to achieve the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
As part of #IDW2023, Veterinarians Without Borders/Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Canada (VWB/VSF) hosted two webinars focused on building a more sustainable future. Both of these programs are generously supported by Global Affairs Canada.
