    Strengthening Food Security: A Conversation With US Rep. Chris Stewart

    The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the world economy, putting the food security and nutrition status of millions of people at risk. In fact, for the first time in five years, world hunger increased significantly in 2020. Given its disruption to essential nutrition interventions and supply chains and its negative impacts on dietary patterns, the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have lasting effects on progress toward achieving Sustainable Development Goal 2 of zero hunger.

    The world is at a critical juncture to get on track toward ending food insecurity and malnutrition. What lessons can be learned from recent setbacks and how can governments around the world support a transformation of the world’s food systems in the years to come? What role does the United States development assistance play in ending hunger and how will crucial multisector interventions be funded?

    In this Devex Newsmaker conversation, reporter Teresa Welsh will speak with U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart on the role of Congress in setting the U.S. global nutrition and food security policy, and the prospects for legislation to strengthen U.S. leadership on global nutrition issues.

    Time: 11 a.m. ET | 5 p.m. CET

    Regenerative Finance Is No Longer the Future — It Has Arrived

    Their complex system problems are proving resistant to simple solutions, and each one has its own web of complexities to unwind. One thing they all have in common, though, is that you can’t fix a broken [name any system] with a broken finance system. That’s why regenerative finance — a concept that’s been percolating at the edges of impact investing and sustainable business since at least 2015, when John Fullerton laid out the principles of regenerative economics — is emerging as an essential strategy.

    Simply put, regenerative finance uses money as a tool to solve systemic problems and regenerate communities and natural environments. Its goal is to heal and create shared value. Profits are not the end, but rather a means to further progress. In regenerative finance, circulation replaces accumulation.

    —  From Regenerative Finance is No Longer the Future — It Has Arrived

    Join them for a Deep Dive with RSF Finance’s Jasper van Brakel, author of the IE Magazine article Regenerative Finance is No Longer the Future — It Has Arrived.

    About Their Deep Dives

    Deep Dives are hour-long Zoom Meetings: Live Q&A Sessions (as opposed to their Zoom Webinars, where the audience is in View-Only Mode) between the author(s) or subjects of a Magazine article and their members. Be sure to read the article in question and come bearing questions!

    Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

    How HiiL Uses Data Innovation to Spark Change in the Justice System

    Compared to sectors like education, healthcare, or infrastructure, the field of law and justice has historically had much less of a data-driven decision-making culture. “Many public decisions are made based on practice, habits, or even just a hunch,” says Dr. Martin Gramatikov, Director, Measuring Justice at HiiL.


    That’s starting to change though, and The Hague Institute for Innovation of Law (HiiL), a social enterprise devoted to user-friendly justice, is one of the leaders. On February 2, 2022, we’ll host a webinar with Dr. Gramatikov to learn how HiiL used SurveyCTO in a multi-wave survey via social media in Uganda in 2021. We’ll cover how HiiL measures justice globally and how this kind of data is driving change in Uganda.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    • How HiiL migrated from paper-based to online surveys

    • What tools helped HiiL carry out multi-wave surveys

    • How dashboards and reports help the team communicate their findings to stakeholders and instigate change

    • How they’re using that data to drive policy reform in the justice field

    HiiL is dedicated to user-friendly justice, which means justice is easy to access, easy to understand, and effective. They also seek to measure how legal problems are being resolved on an everyday basis. You can learn more about their work here: https://www.hiil.org/

    We hope you’ll join us!

    ESG or Sustainability: You Choose

    As an ESG practitioner, you now have two choices:

    You can double down on the (delusional) notion that ESG makes the world better (instead of the reality that it’s predatory delay, which Alex Steffen defines as “the blocking or slowing of needed change, in order to make money off unsustainable, unjust systems in the meantime” – I can hear you objecting as I write, but I encourage you to read this definition carefully and challenge yourself to leverage evidence to prove it wrong.)

    Or

    You can embrace bona fide sustainability, which ensures its claims by gauging impacts vis-à-vis ecological ceiling and social foundation thresholds (sometimes visualized as a Doughnut, thanks to Kate Raworth’s 2012 reinterpretation of Barbara Ward’s 1974 conceptualization of social “inner limits” and ecological “outer limits” for the United Nations).

    ​— From ESG or Sustainability: You Choose by Bill Baue

    Join us for a Deep Dive with Bill Baue, author of the IE Magazine article, ESG or Sustainability: You Choose

    Bill Baue

As a serial social entrepreneur, he has co-founded and instigated several enterprises: r3.0, Science Based Targets, Sustainability Context Group, Sea Change Radio, and Currnt.
    Baue currently serves as Senior Director of r3.0 (Redesign for Resilience & Regeneration), a not-for-profit common good that networks a global community of Positive Mavericks focused on transcending incrementalism to trigger necessary transformations that enact living systems principles. In this role, he serves as the Systems Convener for the Connecticut River Valley Bioregional Collaborative of the Capital Institute’s Regenerative Communities Network. His most recent major writing is as author of the White Paper From Monocapitalism to Multicapitalism: 21st Century System Value Creation (December 2020).

    A Voyage to Net Zero: How Space-Based Technologies Can Deliver the Glasgow Climate Pact

    Resulting from the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference in November, the Glasgow Climate Pact offers the best and final chance to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. However, everyone must step up efforts to deliver on its ambitious — and necessary — commitments. The pact identifies key areas for action on climate change, including adaptation, mitigation, loss and damage, and climate finance, as well as technology transfer and capacity-building.

    The space sector is uniquely placed to aid progress across all these areas — especially in driving the adoption of innovative tools to inform climate-based decision-making. Space technologies can also track emission levels as countries move toward their midcentury targets, helping to hold governments and companies to account.

    To limit warming to 1.5 C, the world must lower carbon dioxide emissions by 45% by 2030 and data insights must drive action toward significant reductions. Close collaboration with the space sector will be key in enabling scalable, impactful solutions.

    This event, hosted by Devex in partnership with the Satellite Applications Catapult, will look at how the space sector can drive forward the key action areas identified at COP 26, as well as accelerate the introduction of new solutions to the increasingly urgent climate crisis.

    Time: 10:00 AM | 3:00 PM GMT

    Navigating Impact Measurement and Management Through EVPA’s Lens

    In a context where the amount of capital available to meet the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 is scarce, investors for impact continuously work to capitalize on the resources available for leveraging and changing systems. Understanding performance gaps, impact needs, and the additionality of the impact created are essential to improving the effectiveness of the capital deployed.

    Impact measurement and management (IMM) is deeply embedded into the DNA of investing for impact, as it drives decision-making throughout the whole investment journey, from the definition of investment strategy to the exit.

    For this reason, EVPA has recently launched a report that highlights key questions to be asked and key elements to be considered to measure, but most importantly manage impact at each stage of the investment journey.

    Download the report: https://evpa.eu.com/knowledge-centre/publications/navigating-impact-measurement-and-management

    Sopact warmly welcomes Alessia Gianoncelli, Head of Knowledge Community and Market Development at @EVPA and one of the report’s authors, to discuss their main findings.
