Creating Shared Value: An Effective Development Tool?

May 22, 2013

Washington, DC

This panel examined the newer business model many multilateral corporations have adopted of providing not only economic output but social value, a concept known as creating shared value.  NGOs have weighed in on the effectiveness of these efforts and some companies are working in partnership to assess the impact of these policies and to measure their effectiveness. These policies can be particularly impactful in countries developing their food and agricultural sectors.
