Como promover a cultura de doação no Brasil? Como engajar novos atores e articular este ecossistema para um esforço coletivo por esta causa? Essas são as perguntas que movem o Movimento por uma Cultura de Doação e que inspiraram a criação da Força Tarefa, berço deste Documento de Diretrizes. Após estudos e escutas, foi possível entender o panorama de doação no país e indicar caminhos fundamentais para uma cultura de doação ainda mais forte e qualificada.
Movimento por uma Cultura de Doação;
How to promote the culture of giving in Brazil? How to engage new players and organize an ecosystem towards a collective effort for the cause? These are the questions the members of the Movement for a Culture of Giving (Movimento por uma Cultura de Doação) have asked themselves, and which have inspired the launch of the Task Force that has prepared these Guidelines. As the result of a carefully conducted listening and research process, this document provides indications on the pathways that seem to be key for everyone who wishes to foster a stronger and more qualified culture of giving in Brazil.
Grupo de Institutos Fundações e Empresas (GIFE);
O terceiro volume da série "Temas do Investimento Social" aborda o conceito de Filantropia Colaborativa, ou seja, formas de colaboração que têm como pré-requisito a participação de no mínimo dois atores da filantropia com envolvimento de recursos financeiros em pelo menos uma das seguintes esferas: colaboração na mobilização ou colaboração na coordenação, alocação e/ ou gestão de recursos financeiros privados para produção de bem público. A publicação busca, assim, apresentar um panorama sobre o desenvolvimento de novas arquiteturas que permitem e contribuem com o aprofundamento dos modos de ação coletiva e colaborativa no setor, além de debater os limites e desafios e apontar caminhos para um aprofundamento qualificado das formas de colaboração no campo da filantropia e do investimento social.
The recent discovery of the Araguaian river dolphin (Inia araguaiaensis) highlights how little we know about the diversity and biology of river dolphins. In this study, we described the acoustic repertoire of this newly discovered species in concert with their behaviour. We analysed frequency contours of 727 signals (sampled at 10 ms temporal resolution). These contours were analyzed using an adaptive resonance theory neural network combined with dynamic time-warping (ARTwarp). Using a critical similarity value of 96%, frequency contours were categorized into 237 sound-types. The most common types were emitted when calves were present suggesting a key role in mother-calf communication. Our findings show that the acoustic repertoire of river dolphins is far from simple. Furthermore, the calls described here are similar in acoustic structure to those produced by social delphinids, such as orcas and pilot whales. Uncovering the context in which these signals are produced may help understand the social structure of this species and contribute to our understanding of the evolution of acoustic communication in whales.
Brazilian Philanthropy Network for Social Justice (Rede de Filantropia Para a Justica Social);
This paper intends to describe the current scenario of community philanthropy in Brazil and worldwide, by defining concepts and mapping important trends and experiences in the field.This work, which proposes a preliminary approach to the issue, was prepared on the basis of bibliographic and document research, as well as testimonies gathered during interviews held with a number of professionals engaging in philanthropy and private social investment in Brazil. This paper was conceived as an open-ended endeavor, a starting point, which does not purpose to be a complete or finished document, but a kickoff point to a reflection on the practices and experiences surrounding this topic, to contribute to the strengthening of community philanthropy in Brazil.
IIE Center for Academic Mobility Research & Impact;
This study provides insight into global mobility in Brazil's higher education sector. With support from the Australian Government's Department of Education and Training, the IIE Center for Academic Mobility Research examines select indicators of internationalization in Brazilian higher education, including the provision of courses taught in English, virtual learning, and initiatives to support inbound and outbound student flows.The findings can help to expand Brazilian higher education institutions' capacity to gather and report mobility data.
Climate change is expected to impact animals that are heavily reliant on environmental factors, such as sea turtles, since the incubation of their eggs, hatching success and sex ratio are influenced by the environment in which eggs incubate. As climate change progresses it is therefore important to understand how climatic conditions influence their reproductive output and the ramifications to population stability. Here, we examined the influences of five climatic variables (air temperature, accumulated and average precipitation, humidity, solar radiation, and wind speed) at different temporal scales on hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) hatchling production at ten nesting beaches within two regions of Brazil (five nesting beaches in Rio Grande do Norte and five in Bahia). Air temperature and accumulated precipitation were the main climatic drivers of hawksbill hatching success (number of eggs hatched within a nest) across Brazil and in Rio Grande do Norte, while air temperature and average precipitation were the main climatic drivers of hatching success at Bahia. Solar radiation was the main climatic driver of emergence success (number of hatchlings that emerged from total hatched eggs within a nest) at both regions. Warmer temperatures and higher solar radiation had negative effects on hatchling production, while wetter conditions had a positive effect. Conservative and extreme climate scenarios show air temperatures are projected to increase at this site, while precipitation projections vary between scenarios and regions throughout the 21st century. We predicted hatching success of undisturbed nests (no recorded depredation or storm-related impacts) will decrease in Brazil by 2100 as a result of how this population is influenced by local climate. This study shows the determining effects of different climate variables and their combinations on an important and critically endangered marine species.
SDG Philanthropy Platform;
The engagement of philanthropy in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is recent. The urgency of greater social impact is one of the points of intersection of the two agendas of work. The report "Philanthropy and the Sustainable Development Goals: Engaging Private Social Investment in the Global Development Agenda" presents a mapping of SDG implementation in Brazil with the support from philanthropy, business and civil society actors.
Philanthropy for Social Justice and Peace;
Individual giving in India, Russia, the Arab region and Brazil is part of PSJP's Philanthropy Study. Previously the study has focused on producing a series of papers on philanthropy in four emerging market countries/regions – India, Russia, the Arab region and Brazil. These studies have taken a broad view of philanthropy, encompassing everything from individual giving (by the very wealthy and by people of more modest means, including crowdfunding) to giving by private and corporate foundations, CSR, community philanthropy, social justice philanthropy, self-funded movements and impact investing.The current paper looks at individual giving by ordinary people in these countries/ regions in more depth. Seen as an area of great promise in India and Russia, it is at an earlier stage in Brazil. In the Arab region giving to the social sector is barely making headway, though traditional giving is very much alive.
Neste documento queremos mostrar que investimentos em Negócios de Impacto social ou ambiental com retorno financeiro já são realidade no Brasil e no mundo e que vários novos atores passaram a fazer parte desse ecossistema. Para compartilhar essa tendência global, estudamos, aprendemos e fizemos parcerias com as Forças Tarefas pioneiras – como as do Reino Unido, dos Estados Unidos, do Canadá e da Austrália. Produzimos estudos para quantificar recursos financeiros já investidos e mapear o ecossistema de organizações que girava em torno dessa temática e organizamos diversos eventos para dialogar sobre os desafios e para entender as alavancas que poderiam catalisar o movimento no Brasil.Este relatório consolida as diversas ações que são resultado direto das recomendações da FTFS e traz reflexões de diversos atores envolvidos com as Finanças Sociais e os Negócios de Impacto.
JMIR Public Health Surveillance;
Background: The 2005 International Health Regulations (IHRs) established parameters for event assessments and notifications that may constitute public health emergencies of international concern. These requirements and parameters opened up space for the use of nonofficial mechanisms (such as websites, blogs, and social networks) and technological improvements of communication that can streamline the detection, monitoring, and response to health problems, and thus reduce damage caused by these problems. Specifically, the revised IHR created space for participatory surveillance to function, in addition to the traditional surveillance mechanisms of detection, monitoring, and response. Participatory surveillance is based on crowdsourcing methods that collect information from society and then return the collective knowledge gained from that information back to society. The spread of digital social networks and wiki-style knowledge platforms has created a very favorable environment for this model of production and social control of information.Objective: The aim of this study was to describe the use of a participatory surveillance app, Healthy Cup, for the early detection of acute disease outbreaks during the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup 2014. Our focus was on three specific syndromes (respiratory, diarrheal, and rash) related to six diseases that were considered important in a mass gathering context (influenza, measles, rubella, cholera, acute diarrhea, and dengue fever).Methods: From May 12 to July 13, 2014, users from anywhere in the world were able to download the Healthy Cup app and record their health condition, reporting whether they were good, very good, ill, or very ill. For users that reported being ill or very ill, a screen with a list of 10 symptoms was displayed. Participatory surveillance allows for the real-time identification of aggregates of symptoms that indicate possible cases of infectious diseases.Results: From May 12 through July 13, 2014, there were 9434 downloads of the Healthy Cup app and 7155 (75.84%) registered users. Among the registered users, 4706 (4706/7155, 65.77%) were active users who posted a total of 47,879 times during the study period. The maximum number of users that signed up in one day occurred on May 30, 2014, the day that the app was officially launched by the Minister of Health during a press conference. During this event, the Minister of Health announced the special government program Health in the World Cup on national television media. On that date, 3633 logins were recorded, which accounted for more than half of all sign-ups across the entire duration of the study (50.78%, 3633/7155).Conclusions: Participatory surveillance through community engagement is an innovative way to conduct epidemiological surveillance. Compared to traditional epidemiological surveillance, advantages include lower costs of data acquisition, timeliness of information collected and shared, platform scalability, and capacity for integration between the population being served and public health services.
