Presenting our last paper “Cooperatives As Naturally Embedded Organizations – Implications for Societal Challenges and Resilience” for the SASE 2019. Conference took place at The New School in downtown Manhattan. Albert and Vera List Academic Center (Bldg D) – D910.
The paper was in the session “Can Co-operatives Create Community and Economic Development? An international perspective” organized by Katherine Chen (The City College of New York and the Graduate Center, CUNY), Torsten Geelan (University of Leicester), Lara Monticelli (Copenhagen Business School), and Joyce Rothschild (VirginiaTech). Moderator was Trevor Young-Hyman (University of Pittsburgh).
We successfully completed another great MAP workshop (Multi-Actor Platform) with partners and local stakeholders on Mzuzu Malawi, for the Farms4Biodiversity project!
Multi-Actor Platforms bring diverse stakeholders together in a formal process of interactive learning, sharing, empowerment, and collaborative governance to discuss opportunities and obstacles to a desired set of goals. Multi-Actor Platforms are designed to promote resilience and innovation in the face of risk, complexity, and uncertainty.
Our objective was to explore new, innovative institutional and policy frameworks to enable use of agroecological practices to reduce biodiversity loss, sustain ecosystem services, and improve climate change adaptation.
My latest paper “Improving business resilience through organizational embeddedness in CSR” has been published at the Development and Learning in Organizations: An International Journal (ISSN: 1477-7282) as a feature article.
The paper builds upon CSR literature by incorporating the concept of embeddedness and then proposing how such an approach can strengthen an organization and increase its resilience.
