THE LOCKDOWN KEYNOTE: FUNDRAISING BOUNCE-BACK
Technical excellence, a great database and deep insight into donors are important for great fundraisers, but you can have that and yet still not succeed. Fear and uncertainty (mainly amongst non-professional-fundraisers) are the biggest organisational problems in fundraising in general, and right now that challenge has just been dialled up in extremis for many organisations: Overcoming the fears of fundraising of the rest of the organisation is where the fundraiser can step up in 2020. This is why Philanthropy & Fundraising International has recorded Alan Clayton’s The Lockdown Keynote: ‘Fundraising Bounce-back’, for fundraisers, non-profit leaders and boards globally to watch for free.

PLAAS Webinar: Democratising South Africa’s food system in and beyond the crisis
Democratising South Africa’s food system in and beyond the crisis Thursday, 21 May 2020 at 13:00 Join PLAAS for the next webinar in this series. This webinar, “Democratising South Africa’s food system in and beyond the crisis”, explores corporate domination in the South African food system. Our food system regularly fails to provide affordable nutritious food to the majority of the population—now more than ever. During the Covid-19 lockdown, the fault lines of corporate domination in the food system have been exposed. Supply chains linking commercial farms to big food manufacture to supermarkets are largely intact and shelves are stocked, but food prices are escalating. Yet locked out of this system are vast numbers of small-scale farmers, who have now lost their access to informal markets. Food relief efforts have reinforced this divide by pouring money from government, social solidarity and the private sector into the corporate food system. What is to be done?

PLAAS Webinar: How to change the food system–perspectives from consumer cooperatives.
The power of supermarkets in South Africa’s food system means the value from high consumer prices does not benefit farmers or farmworkers. Neither food producers nor consumers benefit from this system. This is not unique as the same trend characterises most markets across Europe. Recalibrating the system would require system-wide governance reforms. It would also have to support small-scale producers’ access to input and output markets. While widely discussed, little attention is being paid to alternative consumer cooperatives. The world’s largest and longest lasting cooperatives are, in fact, consumer cooperatives. These co-ops established from Italy to New York work to tackle the injustice of the corporate food system. This webinar will unpack experiences of consumer cooperatives. It will also explore the rise of mutual aid societies and food relief initiatives during the Covid-19 crisis, and what opportunities they offer to shift the power balance in SA’s food system.

SAMEA: The role of Monitoring & Evaluation in Government Interventions: Lessons from the current COVID-19 Pandemic
At the close of 2019 (December) and shortly before New Year 2020 set in, news streamed from Wuhan, China of an outbreak of the now global nuisance –the corona virus (COVID 19). Few people across the world could have picked interest in such a story then but its ravaging impact has almost made every person aware of not only its danger but the various dimensions it y has taken to the global society at ransom. Nobody has the cure yet and most interventions being tried by various countries have not been based on sound evidence; at least from the monitoring and evaluation vocabulary.
