World Convention 18th Global Gathering Presentations

I’m just beginning to listen to the presentations from the 18th Global Gathering of [Campbell-Stone | Stone-Campbell] related churches [Christian – Churches of Christ – Disciples] in Brazil in August, 2012. I’m told via ChristiaNet newsletter that manuscripts are also available for several of the workshops and women’s conversations. You’ll find them at the end of the speaker’s profile.

Joel Rosenberg questions whether the U.S. can recover from its economic and spiritual decline. He also talks about what the Bible has to say about our future.

Drought, conflict, and rising food prices have created one of the worst humanitarian crises in the Horn of Africa in decades. As areas of famine have grown over the past few months, data about the impact and response are sobering: food prices have increased nearly 200 percent, 750,000 people estimated to be at risk of starvation, and 2.4 billion U.S. dollars are needed to provide relief. There is a great need to understand, disaggregate and communicate this type data to increase citizen engagement and bolster a strong, coordinated international response. Sharing data about the famine’s impact and response can increase citizen engagement, improve coordination among organizations, and increase transparency of those involved in the relief effort.

This seminar, organized by World Bank, will present the recent work of Development Seed in the Horn of Africa. Development Seed is a firm which offers services to government, international development agencies, and the private sector to creatively use data for visualization and mapping in order to help those organizations to explain complex issues and improve their decision-making.

Chair: Johannes Sebastian Kiess, Operations Officer, World Bank Institute

Speakers:
Eric Gunderson, President, Development Seed
Dave Cole, Project Lead, Development Seed

Discussants:
Alexandre Marc, Lead Social Development Specialist, World Bank
Joshua Goldstein, Consultant, ICT Sector Unit, World Bank
