Analysis of the Report on Poverty in Colombia Based on the Sustainable Development Goals to AFE Foundations

October 24, 2016

This analysis informs AFE Foundations of the main findings of the technical report presented on the 2nd of March 2016 by the National Administrative Statistics Department (DANE), 'Monetary and Multidimentional Poverty in Colombia 2015'. The data from this report has a relationship with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the work that each AFE Foundation is doing at national or regional level.This technical report shows the advancement of improvements in Colombian society regarding general and extreme povery and multidimentional poverty. The focus of sections of this report divides in national, rural and urban-heads and metropolitan, and a division by Colombian regions. The report shows a comparison with the data from the year 2014 and presents progress since the year 2010. The structure of this analysis is as follows: first the definitions of concepts of poverty, extreme poverty and multidimensional poverty, secondly, a review of the concept of SDG 1 that refers to 'End poverty in all its forms everywhere', however, as the General Assembly of the United Nations mentions: 'The Goals and objectives have an integrated and indivisible nature and conjure the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental'. Thus, working on one SDG means working on all of them, and that progress in one means progressing on them all. It is important to understand how other SDGs influence poverty, therefore, this is included in this analysis. We then analyse the results using the index of monetary and multidimensional poverty, being analyzed by area: rural, urban, and national or by region according to the definitions of DANE. Finally, we give recommendations to Foundations.

Recursos privados para la transformación social - filantropía e inversión social privada en América Latina hoy

October 1, 2015

El concepto de inversión social privada (ISP) ha tomado fuerza en los últimos años, sobre todo en Argentina, Brasil y Colombia, y se ha instalado como guía en el mundo fundacional y empresarial. El predominio conceptual de la ISP se logró,en general, contraponiéndolo a la filantropía, otorgándole grandes virtudes a la primera y muchas limitaciones a esta última. Solo recientemente la filantropía está empezando a recuperar un valor positivo, e incluso en algunos casos, a ser entendida con el significado que suele darle una gran parte de la comunidad internacional.

From Prosperity to Purpose: Perspectives on Philanthropy and Social Investment among Wealthy Individuals in Latin America

June 24, 2015

Centuries of religious traditions, cultural norms, political histories, and economic conditions have shaped today's environment for private giving and social investment in Latin America. While the region's wealthy individuals have a long history of charitable giving, the relatively recent emergence of stable democracies, steady economic growth, and accumulation of personal wealth have provided a foundation for accelerated philanthropic activity. At the same time, cutbacks in government services, acute inequalities, and persistent poverty in some countries have underscored the need for private social investment to help address social and economic development.This study describes the philanthropic environment and illuminates the important and inspirational social investments of wealthy individuals in six Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. It provides new insight into both the soul and practice of philanthropy in the region, and, optimistically, will help to encourage others to invest private philanthropic capital for the common public good.

En Colombia este proceso tendrá especial importancia, teniendo en cuenta los retos que enfrenta como sociedad ante la llegada del pos conflicto y la necesidad de sentar las bases de una paz duradera. La 'Plataforma de Colaboración pos 2015 para la Filantropía y la Inversión Social Privada' facilitará la colaboración, no solamente en el ámbito nacional con los cuatro pilotos que está realizando (Kenia, Colombia, Indonesia y Ghana), sino también una colaboración global.
