Hudson Institute's Center for Global Prosperity (CGP) is pleased to announce the publication of its new 2013 Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances (With a Special Report on Emerging Economies).  Supported by Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC), this first-ever research includes data on financial flows to developing nations from Brazil, China, India, and South Africa, in addition to developed countries. Working with talented partners in each of the four countries, the report also provides local perspectives on global philanthropy and their own success stories.

Economists and development practitioners have long speculated on what emerging economies are giving and investing in the developing world. What is the value of their financial flows? What types of programs? How much assistance is government and how much private aid? Do emerging economies have a different approach to aid based on their own development experiences?

Even with the promising strides in philanthropy in emerging economies, the crackdown on non-profits and cross-border financial flows is a serious threat to civil society and the generosity of individuals who want to give and help countries prosper. What can we do as individuals, institutions and governments to help overcome these challenges?

Please join our distinguished panel in a conversation on what is happening in philanthropy in emerging economies. We also discussed how institutions and governments can best support this growth and overcome the challenges to philanthropy and civil society in general. The new Index can be downloaded for free through the image link under "Further Reading" elsewhere on this page. The Index was launched in Canada in a special presentation held in collaboration with the IDRC and the Economic Club of Canada. Read a full transcript  of the Canadian launch or watch below.
