09:15 – 10:30 : The OECD Centre on Philanthropy: a dive into the unknown
With philanthropy growing in influence and reach, the need to know more about how it operates and how its funding is being allocated becomes more pressing.
Facts and evidence about philanthropic giving are scarce, hard to generalise, but progressively adding up to show a sector that behaves differently from ODA. Since its launch a year ago, the OECD Centre on Philanthropy has been building a knowledge base for the international philanthropic sector, and this session will give a glance at new data and research to better understand how foundations support certain countries, and their specific contributions to education and gender equality across the globe.
Moderator: Bathylle Missika, Head of Networks, Partnerships and Gender Division, OECD Development Centre Andrew Cunningham, Global Lead, Education, Aga Khan Foundation Miren Bengoa, Executive Director, Fondation CHANEL Philanthropy in India: a deep dive into the unknown Pradeep Nair, Regional Director for India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, Ford Foundation (TBC)
The OECD has carried out a unique survey and analysis to understand the domestic philanthropic landscape in India – the country that benefits from the most from foreign philanthropic flows according to 2018 OECD data. Matching foreign and domestic philanthropic resources has revealed an even more intricate map of philanthropy in the country, which is seeing support to gender equality emerge as a key area of support.
10:30 – 11:00 Coffee break
11:00 – 12:30 : Has philanthropy fulfilled its promise?
A critical look from within and beyond Philanthropy can fulfil its role of turning giving into wellbeing, in many different ways. Yet there are practices in philanthropy that do not live up to these expectations: the lack of transparency and accountability can conceal the real contributions of the sector towards improving social outcomes. Bringing diverse voices from academia and foundations, the session will discuss the shifting role of philanthropy – and whether it can live up to its promise.
Moderator: Bathylle Missika, Head of Networks, Partnerships and Gender Division, OECD Development Centre Noura Selim, CEO, Sawiris Foundation for Social Development Mamadou Biteye, Managing Director, Africa Regional Office, The Rockefeller Foundation Nicola Crosta, CEO and Founder, Impact46 Olaf Hahn, Senior Vice President/Director Strategy, Robert Bosch Stiftung
