    Breakfast roundtable with the Mining Shared Value about achieving SDGs

    MSV, hosted by the CIPE, will be holding a roundtable in Washington, D.C. to talk about its impacts to date across the global mining system, and looks forward to talking with attending organizations about directions to take, and futures to make, with stakeholders interested in mining and development.

    Mining Shared Value seeks to scale-up its capacities for positively influencing the global mining system by reaching out to an international stakeholder base. It is currently in a unique position to push for industry-wide understanding and action on local procurement through establishing partnerships across sectors. Working with global players, including the World Bank, International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), and bilateral aid organizations including the German development agency (GIZ), Mining Shared Value has placed itself at the heart of global debates on natural resource governance, but must reach out further to bridge the gaps between research and practical implementation in the industry.

    Measuring the hard to measure in development

    Measuring the effectiveness of development and humanitarian initiatives continues to be a challenge. Interventions often seek to address entrenched economic and social problems under conditions of uncertainty and instability, without clear solutions. They are increasingly implemented through programme structures involving multiple stakeholders pursuing different, sometimes competing, interests.

    Measuring their effectiveness is crucial to achieving better development outcomes, but these factors can make measurement more difficult. While some of the challenges are technical and methodological, relational and political factors also have implications for measurement, even where interventions are not complex.

    Moreover, evaluators and practitioners are under pressure to assess change over unrealistic timeframes, demonstrate value for money, and communicate unqualified ‘success’ to policy-makers and the public. These tensions pose a huge challenge to those trying to enhance sustainable development, and gather credible evidence as to ‘what works, when and why’.

    In partnership with CARE International, our expert panel leads an interactive session on ‘how to measure the hard to measure’ in development. The event explores and compares learning from three projects tackling these challenges, based on four dimensions of ‘hard to measure’ aspects of development interventions, and is followed by a networking reception.

    A Social Enterprise in the Making: Can a Private Sector Model Work for Poor Women in India?

    Women are overrepresented worldwide in the informal sector, with no easy transition to more decent, better-paid employment. Waste picking in particular is a highly vulnerable and risky form of informal employment. In 1995, India’s Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) organized women waste pickers in Ahmedabad into a cooperative to improve their working conditions and livelihoods. Over time, this informal arrangement evolved into Gitanjali – a women-owned and -run social enterprises.

    The Center for Global Development is delighted to bring together some of the key private sector partners that helped Gitanjali generate social value, along with practioners from the public sector and multilateral financial institutions, for a robust discussion about job options for poor women in low-paid, informal occupations, including a model entrepreneurship venture. The event will begin with a discussion of the CGD report, The Gitanjali Cooperative: A Social Enterprise in the Making. A panel discussion will follow. Light refreshments and limited copies of the report’s executive summary will be provided.
