UQ International Development (UQID) operates in a highly competitive landscape securing projects where UQ’s expertise is applied to positively impact developing countries. Pandemic induced border closures and travel restrictions posed a significant risk to projects and contracts. UQID’s Development Coordinators and Development Assistants team quickly moved to redesign projects using a range of remote delivery platforms and in-country partnerships. This ensured successful continuation of projects and the exceeding of client, funder and participant expectations. The team’s commitment to exceptional client service has directly contributed to the securing of additional commercial projects and the achievement of positive impact for global communities.
