The Bellagio Initiative: Aide-mémoire

Published on 19 July 2024

The Bellagio Initiative was developed by The Rockefeller Foundation, the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and the Resource Alliance to contribute to the development of a new framework for philanthropic and international development collaboration in pursuit of human wellbeing in the 21st century. It has incorporated a series of consultations spanning most regions of the world, garnered advice and guidance from an
international Advisory Council, generated nine commissioned papers on a series of relevant topics, included a 15-day Summit at The Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center, in Italy, and involved more than a thousand individuals across the world through social media. The aim of this aide-mémoire is to capture key lessons learned and to maintain the momentum and commitment from those individuals who have brought such a wealth of knowledge and expertise to this process throughout 2011.
