Senior Fellow and Director, Centre for Global Prosperity at the Hudson Institute, Dr. Carol C. Adelman to Address Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 26, 2013) - The landscape of foreign aid has been reshaped as private philanthropy, investment, and remittances have risen dramatically in recent years. These private financial flows from developed to developing countries now far outpace the traditional official aid from OECD governments. Emerging economies such as Brazil, India, China, and South Africa are also now increasingly engaged in overseas philanthropy, private investment, and government aid.

Join Carol Adelman as she shares data from the first attempt to systematically capture the new global trend of public and private capital flows from emerging economies to the developing world. An internationally respected expert on global philanthropy, official aid, and private sector development, Dr Adelman leads the Center for Global Prosperity at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC. She is the main author of the 2013 Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances, produced by the Center for Global Prosperity and funded by Canada's International Development Research Centre.
