The COVID-19 pandemic has created an environment of hyper-uncertainty for social sector organizations, as the economic crisis has weakened funders and nonprofits even as the demand for their assistance is skyrocketing. Many funders and non-profits have completed their initial round of emergency response to the crisis, but they are struggling to contemplate what they should do next.To help social sector leaders confront this challenge, the Monitor Institute by Deloitte is using the tools of scenario planning—the well-tested methodology for thinking about the future pioneered by Deloitte’s Global Business Network group—to help both funders and operating nonprofits get on their front foot in preparing for the landscape on the other side of the COVID-19 crisis. While it isn’t possible to predict the future, this session will provide funders and operating non-profits with an understanding of the tools that can help them think about the critical uncertainties of the moment, reckon with the new “certainties” emerging from the pandemic, and think about how their strategies might (or might not) fit the different possible futures that may emerge in the coming months and years ahead.Registration Required: https://umich.zoom.us/meeting/

Food traceability systems are an important mechanism for strengthening food safety, expanding market access — particularly among smallholder farmers — and optimizing supply chain efficiency. While new digital technologies are improving the functionality and accessibility of these systems, their uptake in developing and emerging markets remains severely limited. Join USAID, the Feed the Future Enabling Environment for Food Security (EEFS), and Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation projects on Wednesday, February 3 at 9:00 a.m. EST for a live webinar to discuss the factors driving food traceability system challenges and successes. Speakers will share lessons learned about the market and regulatory incentives, and the operational and technical requirements that are shaping food operators’ effective adoption and implementation of food traceability systems. The experiences of two Latin American-based agribusinesses engaged in commercializing agricultural traceability software products will also be presented to provide on-the-ground insights into how these tools can connect smallholder farmers and other actors along value chains.Presentations will be followed by a brief facilitated Q&A session with private sector experts on their use of traceability applications as well as an open Q&A for all participants.The webinar will provide practical lessons and guidance for USAID, implementing partners, host country governments, and private sector actors in supporting the expansion of traceability technologies across developing and emerging markets. Register here. Time: 9:00 AM – 10:15 AM
As the SGB Investment sector like all other sectors seeks to thrive despite the recent upheavals and particularly the uncertainties created by the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is important that stakeholders continue to play their individual roles but more importantly prioritize working together. This workshop will focus on the various activities involved in developing the investment pipeline from “sourcing” to “impact”, and also highlight how stakeholders can improve connectivity between the actors in the Investment pipeline: Incubators, Accelerators, Business Development Support Providers and Investors.
