“Civil society has to play a major role in dealing with these challenges – the non-governmental sector here and around the world – because there are, as there always will be, gaps between what government on its own and the private sector on its own will do and can do and because, frankly, there are a lot of things that the NGOs can do better, faster, and less expensively,” said Clinton and offered that climate change is one area where foundations can play a major role.

For more on his speech, read contributor Kaberi Banerjee-Murthy’s post along with Christopher Quinn’s piece for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Ian Wilhelm’s piece for the Chronicle of Philanthropy, and coverage by The Associated Press and Fox-Atlanta.
