Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.

How the #DigitalDevelopment community thinks about sharing #information, #resources, and #data and partners to advance #DigitalTransformation will be key to creating #impact from our efforts and ensuring country #governments can replicate them to better serve their #citizens.
DIAL thinks about #partnerships in everything it does—in fact, were founded in 2015 by a partnership of #global #donors seeking to connect incredibly promising #DigitalDevelopment efforts that had failed to achieve #scale.

1/3. New: The Israel lobby appears to be readying for a campaign to root out leftwing academics in the U.K. critical of Israel’s continuing oppression of the Palestinians — echoing its efforts against the previous Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn. #StarmerOut consortiumnews.com/2021/10/19/aft…
2/3. David Miller had been at the forefront of research into the sources of Islamophobia in the U.K. His work includes a detailed examination of the Israel lobby’s role in fomenting racism towards Muslims, Arabs & Palestinians. #StarmerOut #BICOM #Donors
3/3. Two of BICOM's Executives fund Labour Renaisance, David Garrard and Trevor Chinn. Chinn is also a Director and donor to the recently fined (£14,250) pro-Starmer, anti-Corbyn Labour Together where nearly £1 million was undeclared over a 5 year period. insidecroydon.com/2021/09/21/ree…

The #G7 this weekend renounced its role as #globalhealth leader, @kentbuse and I argue in @bmj_latest: blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2021/06/13…

A thread on what next for global health & #healthsecurity.
Speaking at #G20 Rome #GlobalHealthSummit in May, German Chancellor #Merkel had raised the question, “if not us, who?” to end the global #Covid19 #pandemic.

At #G7UK this past weekend, #G7 responded with "Not us," committing to donate 870mn #vaccine doses when the need is 11bn.
Instead of engaging with recommendations of @TheIndPanel to strengthen #pandemic preparedness & the #globalhealth system (theindependentpanel.org/mainreport/), strongly backed by @antonioguterres (), #G7 noted it would "explore" different proposals.

A thread on #Nonprofits and the #SocialMedia platforms like #TikTok #instagram #Twitter #Facebook etc. 1/6
Getting attention from existing or prospective #nonprofit donors/volunteers on any mainstream Social Media platforms is identical. Sure, there are billions of daily actives. However, the sheer volume of user-generated content also generates enormous digital noise. 2/6
It’s 1000x more challenging than getting the attention of people in a busy marketplace; in addition to the countless storefronts, the ad banners, and the hustling salespersons, people have sensory distractions from the innumerable pictures and videos all around them. 3/6

The political #Trumps and #Brexit of today in most Western democracies are the direct outcome of the politics of chums by the Blairs, Clintons, Bush, Thatcher, Clegg, Cameron, May, etc. Until 2015 in the UK, you could hardly tell the difference between the three main parties;...
All they cared about was the 'Market', not the people. And even after the said 'Market' imploded through its own corruption, these charming politicians gave it a pat on the back, and instead turned to punish the people with #austerity....
These politicians printed more money for the 'Market' while de-funding and tearing down social fabrics with reckless abandon; ignoring the common amenities that everyone shared; from healthcare to education to social care, housing, etc, all was neglected...
