WINGS Dispatch: WINGS at the UN, emerging economies, and the future of data | View Newsletter
This edition of WINGS Dispatch looks at philanthropy in emerging economies around the world. Alliance magazine's latest issue on emerging markets features a number of compelling voices, including our very own Jenny Hodgson (GFCF), Fernando Rossetti (GIFE) and Maria Chertok (CAF Russia). WINGS further explores the issue in a webinar on 28th March. Meanwhile, the International Forum Russia in St. Petersburg is set to host the first award ceremony for the Olga Alexeeva Memorial Prize, rewarding philanthropy development in emerging economies. According to the UNDP's 2013 Human Development Report, rapid economic growth in the Global South will bring several collaboration opportunities. WINGS will engage with the United Nations next month for a special policy dialogue on the role of private philanthropic organisations in international development cooperation. Also in this issue, we recap the successful launch of a new global consultation on philanthropy data held in Rio just weeks ago, and we take a look at the Gates Foundation data interoperability challenge.
