Fostering Commitment and Leadership for Philanthropy's Engagement in the Post-2015 Development Agenda for ColumbiaMar 1, 2015
This initiative has been launched at the workshop: Fostering Commitment and Leadership for Philanthropy's Engagement in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The workshop called together the broad philanthropic community, national and local governments, private sector, academia, and civil society, in order to open a dialogue to identify and promote opportunities where philanthropy and private social investments can move toward a more strategic collaboration in this new context for development. This process will be particularly meaningful in Colombia considering the challenges country faces in a post-conflict context, and the need to lay a foundation for a lasting peace. The 'Post-2015 Partnership Platform for Philanthropy and Private Social Investment' is a global initiative, which aims to facilitate a collaboration between United Nations and philanthropy at global dialogue on Post-2015 Development Agenda and in selected countries: Kenya, Colombia, Indonesia and Ghana.
