Accelerating Market Driven Partnerships (AMP) - U.S. Secretary of State and Tides partner with BSD

BSD Consulting was hired, this year, to work for the U.S. Secretary of State’s Accelerating Market-driven Partnerships (AMP) program in alliance with Tides.

Last year, the U.S. Secretary of State’s Global Partnership Initiative launched the Accelerating Market-driven Partnerships (AMP) program, which harnesses the power of markets to create economic value while driving positive social and environmental outcomes. AMP brings together a cross-sector coalition of government, private sector and non-profit leaders, with the goal of developing, scaling and investing in innovations that generate revenue opportunities, strengthen communities and protect the environment.

Launched in collaboration with the Global Partnership Initiative in the Office of the U.S. Secretary of State, the independent non-profit Accelerating Market-driven Partnerships (AMP) harnesses the power of markets to create economic value while driving positive social and environmental outcomes. AMP brings together a cross-sector coalition of government, private sector and non-profit leaders, with the goal of developing, investing in and scaling innovations that generate revenue opportunities, strengthen communities and protect the environment.

BSD USA, with the support of BSD Brazil, was hired by the US Secretary of State’s AMP program in alliance with Tides to help catalyze a market-driven partnership that addresses urgent socio-economic and environmental challenges; aiming to build an ecosystem of collective impact in emerging markets. The AMP program, which launched in Brazil on April 1, 2013, will have the duration of one year.

AMP and its partners have identified housing as the program’s initial priority and focus.

BSD Consulting’s activities include, but are not limited to:
- BSD Brazil will serve as AMP’s Program Office.
- Participating in the strategic development of the program.
- Mapping key stakeholders and providing input for the development of a platform that will make the connection possible.
