6 New definitions of cross sector convergence 6 Copyright © 2011 Accenture All Rights Reserved. Convergence of issues: Global development problems are complex, interdependent and should not be dealt with in isolation from one another Convergence of Solutions: ADP anticipates a cross-sector convergence of solutions to development problems putting the needs of those most affected squarely at the heart of the matter. Convergence of interests: Whats good for NGOs may turn out to be good for business and vice versa

7 A convergence of issues The challenges facing our planet today are systemic in nature and require integrated rather than siloed responses 7 Copyright © 2011 Accenture All Rights Reserved. Source: World Economic Forum, 2011

9 A convergence of solutions Funders of the development process will change focus from issue to outcome which will require systems solutions to global problem solving 9 Copyright © 2011 Accenture All Rights Reserved. Organizationally Agnostic Identify partner or partners that have the best capabilities for delivering Impact will trump sector, tax status or brand Market driven Harness power of markets but often catalysed by innovative financing mechanisms Intelligent and supportive regulatory environment Sustainable and Scalable: Solutions that are maintained over time and not dependent on a single funding source Become scalable when they have been developed and proven systemically Source: John Elkington, Volan Ventures
