New York, US
Louise Kjaer presented her work as strategic partnership advisor to the Danish Refugee Council at this year’s Shared Value Leadership Summit 2017 in New York. Louise spoke on building a new strategic approach whereby the Danish Refugee Council will engage with businesses of different sectors to enhance job opportunities and foster local economic activities in refugee producing regions. The case of sustainable water provision in the world’s largest refugee camp in Uganda – unfolding in a partnership with the Danish water pump producer Grundfos – was highlighted and caused great attention in a Lab Session jointly delivered with our partner in Norway, Stine Bratsberg.
