I lead the digital efforts at The Rockefeller Foundation, and I have the great pleasure and challenge to explore how digital can be leveraged to make the social sector more effective.Without question, digital has changed the game, and I am particularly fascinated how digital has created a moment of dynamism around storytelling.

AGRICULTURE: Empowering Coffee Farmers

AGRICULTURE: Empowering Coffee Farmers | Social entrepreneurship for Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience | Scoop.it
Although coffee is the most lucrative agricultural enterprise in Uganda, the value chain leaves coffee farmers with less than 2% of the retail value, leaving most of them trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty--yet they play the most important roles in the production chain.

INNOVATING: The Last Mile Challenge: A First Opportunity

INNOVATING: The Last Mile Challenge: A First Opportunity | Social entrepreneurship for Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience | Scoop.it

Rural areas often miss out on essential products, or pay more and get less, because they are isolated. Social entrepreneurs are creating innovative solutions to make the last mile a first opportunity.

There is the misconception that the last mile is a problem that only affects developing countries. In a Western setting, isolation is faced by aging populations in rural areas, people left without transportation means or facing mobility issues.

The Ashoka Community's curator insight, May 14, 2014 5:41 PM

Social entrepreneurs are the ultimate changemakers - they are restless throughout their lives and they are driven to change systems  and create transformative impact. Often, they take on the challenges that other actors deem too difficult, or fail to see the rewards in. Check out these examples of social entrepreneurs that see boundaries as opportunities, delivering sustainability and innovation to the last mile.

OK: Court Will Decide If Fracking Companies Can Be Held Responsible For Earthquakes | Emily Atkin | Think Progress

OK: Court Will Decide If Fracking Companies Can Be Held Responsible For Earthquakes | Emily Atkin | Think Progress | Social entrepreneurship for Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience | Scoop.it

Oklahoma’s highest court is about to make a decision that could really shake up the way fracking companies do business in the state.

In the coming months, Oklahoma’s Supreme Court will decide whether two oil companies should be held financially responsible for injuries suffered by a woman during a 2011 earthquake thought to have been caused by drilling activity. If the woman’s lawsuit is successful, it could set a legal precedent for future earthquake claims against oil and gas companies in Oklahoma.

In other words, oil and gas wells in Oklahoma would “become economic and legal-liability pariahs,” attorney Robert Gum said in comments reported by the Tulsa World.
