Sept. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - In a special presentation held in
Canada's International Development Research Centre in collaboration with the Economic Club of
Canada, internationally respected expert on global philanthropy
Carol Adelman will discuss new data from the
2013 Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances. This report examines the impact of public and private money flows from emerging economies like
South Africa to the developing world.
When: Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.Where: Fairmont Château Laurier, 1 Rideau Street, Ottawa
2013 Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances is the first attempt to systematically capture the new global trend of public and private capital flows from emerging economies to the developing world. It details the sources and magnitude of private giving to the developing world. It also reframes the discussion about the roles of public and private sectors in foreign aid by showing that the full scale of a country's generosity is measured not just by government aid, but by private giving as well.
An internationally respected expert on global philanthropy, official aid, and private sector development,
Carol Adelman leads the
Center for Global Prosperity at the Hudson Institute in
Washington, DC. She is the main author of the
2013 Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances, produced by the Center for Global Prosperity with support from
Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC).
Jean Lebel will open the lecture, which will be moderated by
Kristen Shane, Associate Editor of
Canada's foreign policy newsweekly.
Spaces are limited and journalists are encouraged to register with IDRC. Journalists can also join in the conversation through
