The Bellagio Initiative is a series of global consultations to produce a new framework for philanthropic and international development collaboration in pursuit of human wellbeing in the 21st century. The project is led by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), the Resource Alliance and the Rockefeller Foundation.
Throughout 2011, the Initiative is engaging a diverse international group of practitioners, opinion leaders, social entrepreneurs and donors to consider innovative solutions to some of the major challenges affecting poor people today. The Initiative is built on global dialogue meetings with key constituencies around the world, commissioned thought pieces and a Summit which was held at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, Italy.
