Private Philanthropy for Development : What role for French foundations?
On 14 September 2018, the OECD organised the launch of the French version of its report "Private Philanthropy for Development" at the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, Paris.
This report, edited in French in May 2018 analyzes how private foundations (143 covered by the survey) are committed to development. It provides practical recommendations for foundations.
The conference was introduced by Cyrille Pierre, Head for sustainable development at the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs and Benoît Miribel, President of the French Centre for Funds and Foundations, and Managing Director of the Mérieux Foundation. The conference was offering two round table discussions :
Christophe Angely, Head of Strategy at FERDI, moderated the second round table : "How to increase the capacity of foundations to work on international development?"
As the new sustainable development agenda suggests, foundations have a key role to play in international cooperation. How can we help French foundations to increase their capacity to act ? What role for government? How can we work together to strengthen the leverage effect of philanthropists' actions?
