Creative partnership for development…

What is this course about?
The importance of the private sector in promoting sustainable development, from the local to the global level, is undeniable. Businesses are making ever greater commitments to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) through involvement in community development initiatives. However, effective community development is complex. This easily leads to initiatives that are not sustainable, or to businesses just writing cheques for NGOs. Neither yields optimal results – whereas meaningful collaboration can. Businesses can benefit from working with NGOs that have a wealth of technical expertise, community knowledge and local networks. NGOs can learn from business approaches and material and non-material assistance to improve their work. Jointly they can develop efforts with lasting positive impact. CSR for community development provides many exciting opportunities for NGOs and businesses to work together!

FAQs
What can the platform offer to business people?

The platform offers many opportunities to access new research information directly from universities, institutes and practitioners, and to feed into the agenda for new research to be undertaken. Platform events will offer networking opportunities and the chance to share with others successful strategies and lessons learned in business sectors such as agriculture, transport, and construction.

I work for a non-profit organization in the field of development. What can the platform offer people at the grassroots?

The platform is a ‘space’ to enable professionals working in areas relating to climate adaptation to share their knowledge and experience with each other. If you are working with poor communities where farmers are dealing with changed planting seasons or new pest infestations, where urban shanty-dwellers are finding that ‘climate migrants’ are crowding out already overstretched services, or where more village children are coming down with dengue fever – then the platform may indeed have something to offer you. It is all about linking up with others who are facing similar challenges, and figuring out what responses will work best in your particular situation.
