In his life, Colin Powell demonstrated a deep belief that embodying America’s values is the best way to promote them—that actions in our communities & for our country speak far louder than words. See more on the passing of Gen. Colin Powell, here: rockefellerfoundation.org/news/statement…
At the #FoodGameChangers Lab, cohorts from around the world teamed up to transform #foodsystems' impact on our health, planet, economy & more. @RockefellerFdn's own @Innovationwoman writes about their innovative solutions, like #truecostoffood in #MatterOfImpact.
Although most dairy farmers in Nigeria are women, they trail behind men in total income, assets, credit access, and more. That's why Directed Renewable Energy investments strategically directed to them can both address this gender gap and lower emissions. Learn how ⬇️
Young people and teens are already doing their part to end this pandemic- a new report with @Generation_Lab shares. They're ready to take #Covid19 precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones. Read more: #MeetingThisMoment rockfound.link/3mRjtmV
The resources, networking, and advocacy power of foundations can bolster global economic recovery efforts and equitable vaccination. That is why today, @RockefellerFdn joined together with some of the world’s largest philanthropies to spur an equitable recovery from #Covid19:
We must look at the big picture: #Covid19 reversed decades of progress as now, wealthier nations spend trillions rebuilding that others cannot. In this quarter's #MatterOfImpact I call for #COP26 to unite the world and ending this great divergence. Read my blog ⬇️
61% of people in richer countries are protected from #Covid19, but 96.5% of people in poorer countries are exposed. A Covid charter would advance equity and redirect resources from advanced economies to support the developing world. More in @politico: rockfound.link/3azTU4b
We must close equity gaps widened by Covid-19. The new #MatterOfImpact series by @RockefellerFdn features stories about how green energy initiatives helped dairy farmers in Nigeria, fresh food production in a Louisiana food desert, and more. #MeetingThisMoment
Fantastic news from @DataKind and congratulations to their new #CEO, Lauren Woodman! When it comes to social impact, data is key. Leaders like Lauren and @DataKind are paving the way for how to leverage #dataforgood and use #datascience to serve humanity. #datasaveslives twitter.com/DataKind/statu…

To recover from the Covid-19 crisis, we have to change course. Energy innovation can foster a sustainable recovery that brings better health to all, revives economies, reduces inequalities & builds resilience. Join me at the #HLDE2021 now➡️un.org/en/hlde-2021/p…
So wonderful to see legendary former @USAID administrators @GayleSmith and @rajshah at yesterday’s #CovidSummit. They are now working in & out of government to end the pandemic—grateful for their bold leadership and invaluable counsel.

We are thrilled to see @WhiteHouse commit to donating +500 million vaccines 💉 to foreign countries ahead of@POTUSS'#COVIDSummitt. 🌏 This is the type of bold action we need to bridge the funding gap 💰 and end this pandemic, for all people, everywher#LeaveNoOneBehindind
That’s why @RockefellerFdn is investing $1bn to leverage the power of partnerships to end this pandemic, recover with justice and equity, and prevent the next one. #MeetingThisMoment rockefellerfoundation.org/news/rockefell…
A crisis can unlock a sense of innovation, the urgent resources & new partnerships that can save lives today & bolster global health care for tomorrow. We can save lives now by establishing a common agenda and strategy that ensures people, schools, businesses & economies thrive.
As the world urgently seeks to scale access to vaccines, we know that the effective provision of O2, therapeutics, PPE, + rapid & frequent testing will help save lives right now. We must find ways accelerate equitable availability and use of the public health tools that work.
Right now, >4% of people in Africa have been fully vaccinated, vs 54% in the US & 60% in the EU. #CovidIsNotOver: No one is safe until everyone is safe. @POTUS'🌏#COVIDSummitt is an opportunity to bring an end to this pandemic, through strengthened leadership + equitable policy
At today’s 🌍#COVIDSummitt, we’re calling for bold actions: 🧭 Strengthened global leadership + accountability 🗺️ A fully-costed roadmap to end the pandemic 👩🏽‍🏭 A global task force 💉 Accelerated vaccine dose-sharing 🚚 Prioritized vaccination delivery 💰 Increased funding

To end energy poverty, we must prioritize a country-led approach. RF, @IKEAFoundation & @SEforALLorg met with Energy & Environment Ministers at #UNGA76 to deepen collaboration on #SDG7 and #SDG13 that can boost economic development – all without hurting the 🌍. #HLDE202114

"Today we’re facing an extraordinary divergence in the global economy, and unless we do more, we’re going to see more disease and death." @rajshah, President of @RockefellerFdn, spoke with @YahooFinance's @serwer on solutions to help drive #COVID19 vaccination. #Concordia21

“In fact, if you look at lower income countries that have low vaccination rates are four times more likely to generate variants of concern that will undermine the economic recovery in wealthier countries.” - @rajshah

At @ConcordiaSummit: “To overcome big disease burdens - smallpox polio, Ebola, now COVID-19 - we just need to do so much more to make vaccines available in lesser developed countries. We need to do the types of things that invest in health workers all across the world. - @rajshah

“Addressing energy poverty — giving people access to renewable electrification — can create half a billion jobs,” Rockefeller Foundation Pres. @rajshah says, adding that it’s “the only real path to get countries interested in a serious energy transition on a global basis.”

One billion people live without access to one lightbulb's power in a year. 💡 In the 63 countries that are energy-poor, a transition to renewable energy can produce 1/2 billion jobs and real upward mobility.#Concordia211.k

"The world is at war with a pathogen, and during wartime we muster great resources to respond." RF president @rajshah calls for a Covid Charter to bridge the funding gap for lesser developed countries at @ConcordiaSummit's #Concordia21.
Retweeted by Dr. Rajiv J. Shah
The world's poorest people continue to be left behind in global recovery efforts, while billionaires reached an all-time high of $10.2 trillion in wealth. We need a Covid Charter to minimize both human vulnerability and the existential threat of climate change. #Concordia21
Without significant interventions, human insecurity precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change will plague the world for decades to come. @rajshah argues that global leaders must rethink the current approach to international development: trib.al/QzcYi7N

Another @gatesfoundation stat on #genderequity: women's employment globally is expected to remain 13 million jobs below the 2019 level. #EquityIsOpportunity, which is why @RockefellerFdn is working to bridge this #SDG5 gap through efforts like #17Rooms: twitter.com/RockefellerFdn…
People around the world are poorer, hungrier, and less healthy as a result of the pandemic. We have lost ground on many of the #GlobalGoals. But the @gatesfoundation's Goalkeepers report tells us where & in some cases, how to make up that ground: gates.ly/GK21VI
> 80% of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered in upper-middle-income countries—a deeply troubling inequity. But data is an important tool to ensure equitable distribution, and working together with our partners we can overcome these challenges. #DataSavesLives
1 in every 500 US residents have died of Covid-19: a tragic statistic that reminds us of the urgency to use layers of Covid safety interventions. Wear a mask, #GetTheShot, and together #WeCanDoThis. cnn.com/2021/09/15/hea…
