Venture Philanthropy in Development

‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌dev newsletter feb 2014 - EVP Netfwd cover

OECD netFWD will launch its first study Venture Philanthropy in Development: Dynamics, Challenges and Lessons in the Search for Greater Impact on 25 February in New York.

This publication examines the journey of foundations that have adopted “venture philanthropy”- i.e. the application of business logic to philanthropic operations- as part of their strategic orientation and develops recommendations on how venture philanthropy and other innovative approaches can increase philanthropic impact.

The launch is organised jointly with the Rockefeller Foundation, one of the seven foundations that contributed directly to this publication. Further launch events in 2014 are planned in Mexico in April and Paris in June.

The full study and dissemination plan will be available on OECD Network of Foundations Working for Development (netFWD).

Promoting youth employment in Africa must be everybody’s job

 ‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌dev newsletter feb 2014 - find a job

Putting African youth to work is a job for all Ministers in any government, not Ministers of Employment and/or of Youth alone: the whole breadth of public policies must be directed towards the strategic objective of structural transformation for job creation.

This is one recommendation that the International conference on Youth Employment in Sub-Saharan Africa (YESSA, Dakar, Jan. 28-30) formulated ahead of the special Africa Union ministerial meeting on Employment to be held in Namibia next month.

The Development Centre, which partnered with PEP and the IDRC to organise YESSA, also argued that such job-creating development strategies must stimulate business in the informal and rural “sectors”, where most Africans actually work and will continue to seek work in the foreseeable future.

Making Philanthropic Engagement more Effective

 ‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌newsletter logo netfwd

The Guidelines for Effective Philanthropic Engagement - a dialogue tool with the aim of bridging the “communication/ collaboration gap” between foundations and other development actors, especially governments - will be discussed in and at the margins of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC) Ministerial Meeting in Mexico.

The Guidelines were developed under the leadership of the Development Centre and the OECD Network of Foundations Working for Development (netFWD) together with the UN and other partners from the philanthropic field. The Guidelines are currently undergoing a broad set of consultations with different stakeholders on the global and national levels and Mexico is seen as key opportunity to reflect on the issue of better collaboration between the philanthropic sector and governments - both donor governments as well as governments form the Global South- in the post-2015 framework.
