What might reimagining development futures look like and involve for development students, educators, researchers, and practitioners? In this final section of the Handbook, contributors offer a range of practices, orientations and methodologies that current and future people working in this vast and changing field might do well to consider and take on as part of re-imagining development futures beyond what we have come to know. A strong thread working through all of the chapters is the importance of attending more deeply to the peoples, knowledges, and non-human kin relations that have for far too long been relegated to development’s margins. Each chapter makes a case for why development, in the diverse contexts within which the authors are writing, needs to change and what this change might encompass leading to more equitable, creative, and nourishing human/more-than-human futures (see McGregor and Alam in this volume). Reflecting authors’ geographical location in the Asia-Pacific region, the chapters focus on specific examples of development futures from settler-colonial-Indigenous Australia, South Pacific island countries, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines.
