The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as part of Agenda 2030 – see: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld Sustainable Development Goals – your questions answered: http://cafod.org.uk/News/Campaigning-news/Sustainable-Development-Goals In Video 1, CAFOD explains what the SDGs are and why they are transformational in the way the world fights extreme poverty, inequality, injustice and climate change. In Video 2: CAFOD explains what civil society groups can get involved and help make sure we get there. “We are faced not with two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but rather with one complex crisis which is both social and environmental. Strategies for a solution demand an integrated approach to combating poverty, restoring dignity to the excluded, and at the same time protecting nature.” – Pope Francis, Laudato Si’ 139. In 2015, world leaders from 193 countries agreed the Sustainable Development Goals – or SDGs – the world’s new action plan for the next 15 years to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, fight inequality, tackle climate change and achieve sustainable development for all. The SDGs follow the Millennium Development Goals - or MDGs –agreed in 2000 in a global coordinated attempt to tackle development issues. There are four underlining principles that come with the SDGs and that are transformational in the way we work on development in the future: Firstly they are universal and apply to every country, rich and poor, north and south, developed and developing. Secondly, they integrate all dimensions of sustainability: economic development, social progress and environmental protection. Thirdly, the SDGs tell us we should leave no one behind. And finally, the SDGs require the participation of all. Taken together with the Paris Climate Change agreement and the Pope’s Encyclical Laudato Si, the SDGs provide a new framework for approaching sustainable development.

At Agra Innovate, Wandie Kazeem moderated a Panel session on the ‘Challenges of Women in Agriculture and Strategies for Sustainable Development’ with Dr. Ebby Luvaga, Professor at the Department of Economics Iowa State University; Nkiru Okpareke, CEO Enviro Green Farms; Mira Mehta, CEO Tomato Jos, and Onyaole Patience, CEO Replenish Farms. They all address factors that limit women participation in agriculture and deny them a sustainable living from the sector. Dr. Ebby Luvaga highlighted a lack of inclusive government policies and cultural issues limiting women’s participation. Nkiru Okpareke emphasizes lack of access to entitlement and resources and a negative perception of women in farming as barriers to women participation. Mira Mehta and Onyaole Patience buttresses the causal factors of reduced women participation in agriculture with inadequate access to infrastructure (ICTs & transportation) and a lack of capacity building training support. They also talk on the measures that could help increase women’s participation in the sector: an adjustment of land tenure system that redistributes equally the power to own land, a robust extension support, the education and employment of women in the sector to instill confidence to participate and skills to compete at higher level. They advise women and other category of the Nigerian populace interested in agriculture.

What is CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY? What does CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY mean? CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY meaning - CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY definition - CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Corporate sustainability is a business approach that creates long-term consumer and employee value by creating a "green" strategy aimed toward the natural environment and taking into consideration every dimension of how a business operates in the social, cultural, and economic environment. It also formulates strategies to build a company that fosters longevity through transparency and proper employee development. Corporate sustainability is an evolution on more traditional phrases describing ethical corporate practice. Phrases such as corporate social responsibility (CSR) or corporate citizenship continue to be used but are increasingly superseded by the broader term corporate sustainability. Unlike phrases that focus on "added-on" policies, corporate sustainability describes business practices built around social and environmental considerations. The phrase is derived from two keys sources. The Brundtland Commission's Report, Our Common Future, described sustainable development as, "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs". This desire to grow without damaging future generations' prospects is becoming more and more central to business philosophies. Within more academic management circles, Elkington (1997) developed the concept of the Triple Bottom Line which proposed that business goals were inseparable from the societies and environments within which they operate. Whilst short-term economic gain could be chased, a failure to account for social and environmental impacts would make those business practices unsustainable. Measuring corporate sustainability is possible through composite indicators which aggregate environmental, social, corporate governance and economic measures, e.g. Complex Performance Indicator (CPI). The challenge for many businesses in this new field is to quantify the positive impacts of sustainability. Sustainability can increase revenue, reduce energy expenses, reduce waste expenses, reduce materials and water expenses, increase employee productivity, reduce hiring and attrition expenses, and reduce strategic and operational risks. Furthermore, sustainable business practices may attract talent and generate tax breaks. Transparency deals with the idea that by having an engaging and open environment in the company as well as the community will improve performance and increase profits. It is an open culture that promotes employee involvement in the innovation and creative processes. Reaching out to the community creates a much bigger team is extremely cheap and provides evaluation from all angles. Companies are looking inward and realizing changes must be made to fulfill environment needs such as energy efficiency, limiting product waste and toxicity, and designing innovative products. One way for companies to accomplish this is through open communications with stakeholders characterized by high levels of information disclosure, clarity, and accuracy. Sustainability requires a company to look internally and externally to understand their environmental and social impacts. This requires the engagement of stakeholders to understand impacts and concerns. A business can address sustainability internally by educating employees and seeking to reduce impacts through waste reduction, energy efficiency, etc. Employee engagement can be a powerful motivator by having a philanthropy committee or a green team. As a company looks externally, stakeholders include customers, suppliers, community, and non-government organizations. Companies have adapted by implementing new creative ideas related to sustainability, such as preparing upgraded technology that can transform the product rather than throwing away old materials. New solutions that improve recycling and waste redirecting can ultimately reduce costs and increase profits. For example, Wal-Mart has redirected more than 64 percent of the waste generated by stores and Sam’s Club facilities. In 2009 alone, they recycled more than 1.3 million pounds of aluminum, 120 million pounds of plastics, 11.6 million pounds of mixed paper and 4.6 billion pounds of cardboard. Annually, they expect to save around $20 million and prevent 38 million pounds of waste being sent to landfills. Companies focused on sustainability are appointing chief sustainability officers leading a department with a mandate to proactively develop and implement a corporate sustainability strategy.

A large majority of Kenya’s labor force comprises informal workers and contractors. Launched in 2015, the Kenyan startup Lynk is a technology platform in Nairobi that connects freelance workers (fundis) to customers looking for services, such as plumbing and carpentry. Customers can request a job via mobile app, web or SMS platforms, which is then bid on and completed by a fundi. Lynk was established to create a smarter way for households and businesses to contract for services throughout Nairobi, with the goal to transform the informal worker industry. Historically, Lynkhi had focused on its engineering, platform development and labor force augmentation, and had not developed specific strategies to acquire customers and ensure continued use of its platform. Lynk retained the Anderson AMR field study team to focus on Lynk Requests, one of the company’s three product offerings: a full-service solution whereby customers specify a job and Lynk matches them with a qualified worker. The team was tasked with devising a marketing strategy to identify effective customer acquisition and repeat purchase behavior methods to achieve scalable growth. To complement its secondary research, the team traveled to Kenya for two 10–12 day research trips. During this time, they conducted critical primary research to better grasp the culture and nuances of the service industry, tech landscape, and customer behavior in the country via data collection, surveys, one-on-one interviews and focus groups. They met with Lynk’s target audience, which includes Kenyan nationals, Kenyan Indians and expatriates, as well as Kenyan entrepreneurs, academics, industry experts, tech professionals and employees/founders of Lynk’s direct and indirect competitors. The data the team gathered in-country was integral to shaping their final marketing and promotional strategy recommendations for Lynk. The final recommendations included three implementable strategies: a “Refer and Earn” program to encourage customer acquisition, a “Surprise and Delight” campaign to reward loyalty and encourage repeat purchases, and an email marketing strategy to promote the Lynk brand and influence customer purchase frequency on the platform. Two of the strategies were successfully built and launched by Lynk shortly after the conclusion of the AMR project, and the company continues to expand to more customers and products today.
