Media Advisory - Emerging Economies: The Changing Landscape In Foreign Aid, Giving, And Investment

OTTAWA, Sept. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - In a special presentation held in Ottawa by 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 China, Brazil, India, and 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

The 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).

IDRC President Jean Lebel will open the lecture, which will be moderated by Kristen Shane, Associate Editor of Embassy, Canada's foreign policy newsweekly.

Spaces are limited and journalists are encouraged to register with IDRC. Journalists can also join in the conversation through Twitter #Adelman and Facebook.
