Studying a Master’s in Globalisation, Business and Development at IDS

I wanted a cause that would introduce me to the private-sector world to the markets place because again, at the end of the day, most of the resources that we utilize and the nonprofit space comes from the you know the private sector and I wanted to understand how They think how that our thinking is done there.

What are the factors that influence that you know mobilization of resources and, of course I wanted to do that in a top school in the school that is known for development study, so I chose ideas so right now. I am the program’s director of projection, Evo Africa. I found a project a neighbor Africa five years ago and basically, what we do is to promote digital inclusion and disability advocacy in Nigeria and of course, we do a bit of work beyond interacts in some African countries.

The impact has been huge. The first one is understanding more and more the place of collaboration and knowing fully well that it’s not just enough to have interesting ideas or have some of the best programs. But to understand that no single person would have all of the resources needed to make a project or program successful. So that’s for me is one and it’s key then. Secondly, is understanding how to translate global reports, data in it’s a world of data, and we see a lot of that every day and sometimes they can be overwhelming.

But through my studies there I know where to look to find the data to support our work, especially where we talk to donors, grantors and international partners. It’s easier for me to understand trends, to understand developments, reports and translate those to practical programs that people understand. You know people from both side of the of the world, people who are in the research space and those who don’t really have interest in the research base.

I’m able to fill in the gap to speak what both parties can understand before coming to heidi’s project. A neighbor was just one of those small projects that we know struggle to put together, and but the mi-8 ideas changed a lot of things because, first of all, it changed. My thinking on you know the place of inclusion in the overall developments in your space and, more importantly, the knowledge Kenya was very useful in helping us access.

Pakal grants grants that today has turned us to a national organization that we are here to implement programs on a national scale, and before coming here, we had just three staff right now we have about 12. Today project a neighbor has grown. We are well-positioned to take on issues on national level. We now contribute to policies, and you know, there’s a new disability bill passed in Nigeria and we are leading a campaign to push for the implementation, and that, for us, is huge.

We have never worked at a skill, and the knowledge and experience at ideas has helped a lot. You

Business and Sustainable Development – Impact Film

But today the world faces enormous challenges that threaten to undo these games, including climate change and widening inequality. The sustainable development goals provide a roadmap for how to tackle our times most urgent issues by 2030.

The government’s can’t achieve them alone. Global goals need business and the business the sustainable development division was created to show the business. What we want to do with this commission was change the attitude of business to development, lift it out of the world of something we ought to do of corporate social responsibility of philanthropy and make it a business problem and opportunity.

A problem in the sense that unsolved the whole climate and opportunity for business in the world will will shrink as these problems rise in their seriousness and intensity, but solved through business engagement problems that offer literally a P & L. A bottom line an opportunity to make profit out of doing good, and, and so our challenge was to show that these development issues, far from being big, intractable black holes, can be broken down into extraordinarily profitable, dynamic business opportunities.

And that’s what we’ve done with this report. Blended finance is the marriage of philanthropic or public grant capital with traditional return, oriented capital and a mutually reinforcing structure that facilitates the financing of fun investable projects and the goal of the blended finance taskforce is to bring together stakeholders from the public and private sector together To overcome barriers to financing and to propose action already ends which would allow trillions of dollars of capital flows, to bridge the gaps in the SDGs and by accessing and blending these different pools of capital and creative ways.

I’m absolutely convinced that we can bridge the sometimes seemingly impossible financing needs that are required to meet the UN STG objectives. Well, the business and sustainable development commission was set up to do good. I mean business is part of society. It’s got to be a good ancestors got to leave a legacy, businesses being one of the greatest forces for good and history. We need to make sure we keep being met.

The company I work for Laerdal is creating a new master plan for our free zone. We’re going to be creating a circular economy based on the 17 SDGs that carries out high-value industrial projects, so we’re going to be doing some of the most challenging fabrication engineering activities in Nigeria, supporting the entire region, we’re going to be doing all of it in a Sustainable economic freezer, so the most important thing is that there is a generation that is coming after us, which we refer to loosely as the millennial generation, who are significantly more aware than we are of the importance of the sustainable developed, the need to protect society.

So the message that I’d like to give to that generation is, we are alert, we’re awake and as business leaders, we as a group of CEOs have created a framework whereby the world that they inherit will be a significantly better one than the one that we inherited And in turn, I think it’s extremely important for all of us to realize that this is no longer nice to do it’s a must do, and by doing so we will change the world for the better, as identified by the better business.

Better world report transforming the food and land use system presents one of the biggest opportunities to achieve the SDGs. In fact, today’s food system is not fit for purpose, and it is failing us environmentally as well as socially transforming food and land-use systems will take work from all the people who understand and shape those systems from scientists to policymakers, to consumers to business as well as Technology pioneers the new food and land use coalition set up by the business commission, aims to do exactly that by bringing together a coalition of over 30 organizations and I’m proud to chair this new initiative.

The business commission has some amazing women leaders involved and at some point we were talking about the SDGs and their leadership office agenda. We realized that actually the SDG agenda, as it is very commonly framed talks about women as being recipients of the sustainable development goals and empowered by the sustainable development goals, as opposed to necessarily taking a leadership role. We decided that the business commission should try and change the narrative, so women rising 2030 is really about encouraging women to stand up and lead for the sustainable development goals wherever they are well.

We’ve got 13 years to go, haven’t we and if we’ve only got 13 years, I’m a bit worried about how much we have to do in a short period of time, but it is gaining momentum and, as you gain momentum, these things tend to speed up. What do we need? We need alignment, we need far less talking a much more action. We need concrete plans and concrete goals and some of the especially the four key initiatives out of the business and sustainable development Commission.

They go some way to get in some concrete action plans, but there’s so much more to do. We still have time to save our planet. Let’s do it. Now. Water comes first in business and in life, a new social contract, the East ajiz, the Paris climate agreement act. Now business needs to look beyond our own operations to transform the entire value chain and to address the scale of the environmental and social challenges and places
