ADEC Innovations Knowledge Management is laying the groundwork for establishing a partnership with the Humanitarian Leadership Academy (HLA) Philippines Center, an international non-profit organization that gives people access to learning resources, tools and platforms that enable global learning focused on efficient and effective disaster risk reduction and management.
Operating in a country prone to disaster, HLA endeavors to support the development of skills and humanitarian learning through digital tools, face-to-face training and mentoring support so that preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery are more effective, immediate and local.
ADEC Innovations CEO James Donovan views the partnership as a perfect opportunity for his organization—an impact investing company focused on creating sustainable business solutions—to contribute to nation-building through education.
“Improving humanitarian learning is a major initiative that can ensure the preparedness of individuals and ultimately save lives,” Donovan remarked. “HLA’s work is truly remarkable, and we are excited to be part of it.”
Currently, HLA has centers in strategic global locations, including Kenya and the Philippines. As one of the topmost countries to regularly experience calamities brought about by typhoons, HLA’s presence in the Philippines is a crucial step in providing the support Filipinos need to stay resilient in the face of disasters.
As they move towards their goal of bringing revolutionary learning techniques and technologies to growing areas, the academy has chosen ADEC Innovations Knowledge Management to be a major partner in developing eLearning content and resources for their local online humanitarian courses.
“We are ready to level up on learning innovation in the Philippines,” said Ms. Joyce Pilapil, Center Director of HLA Philippines Academy.
ADEC Innovations Knowledge Management’s expertise in eLearning content development and instructional design makes the company a perfect match for HLA’s digital learning initiatives.
“By combining technology and existing learning facilities,” explained Donovan, “eLearning can bring best-class education to far-flung places in the Philippines at much more cost-effective ways.”
HLA’s self-paced learning modules tackle humanitarian leadership, volunteerism and management, and are delivered through Kaya, their own learning management system platform.
With the shared goal of creating real impact and change through sustainable development and innovative learning, ADEC Innovations and HLA plan to collaborate on eLearning projects for disaster and risk management in the country.
ADEC Innovations Knowledge Management is a global innovator in the educational services industry. It brings sustainable and customized learning solutions to facilitate both professional and academic development.
By providing more accessible learning opportunities to the humanitarian sector, HLA aims to enable people around the world to prepare for and respond to crises in their own countries.

Nairobi City, Kenya (May 25, 2016) – “Transparency in processes, perceptions and governance in public-private partnership projects is essential, along with government incentives. Without it, the private sector will remain unconvinced of PPP initiatives,” Chairman of ADEC Innovations Foundation and Global CEO Alliance James M. Donovan said during the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Strathmore Business School.
The MoU fosters the joint creation of a center of excellence for the development of information and communications technology (ICT) in public-private partnerships (PPP), which is in line with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe’s (UNECE) need for an International Centre of Excellence in PPP for ICT.
Donovan added that there is a need to put into focus the best practices garnered from successful PPPs, ones that address critical obstacles to facilitating a successful pipeline of projects integral to national development.
The joint center of excellence with Strathmore Business School, which will function as a research and innovations laboratory will establish the standards and best practices in PPP for ICT; coordinate with different UNECE member countries for ICT research; create a pool of subject matter experts for the development of UNECE ICT standards; and build partnerships with different public organizations for the development of standards and best practices in PPP for ICT.
In 2015, ADEC Innovations Foundation was designated by the UNECE as a host organization for one of the world’s International Specialist Centres for Excellence in PPP, whose main aim is to prepare best practice guidelines in PPP and help governments build capabilities in successful PPP projects. Meanwhile, the Global CEO Alliance is a network of global CEOs who support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Manila, Philippines (March 2, 2016) – The ADEC Innovations Foundation has partnered with the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) Scientific Research Foundation, Inc., to further advance the development of public-private partnership (PPP) standards for the global health sector by examining and analyzing PPP issues in the Philippines.

MANILA, PHILIPPINES (March 14, 2016) ADEC Innovations’ CEO and Global Online Association for Learning (GOAL) Founder James M. Donovan believes that promoting the eLearning industry in the Philippines will bring in at least a billion in outsourcing revenue, generate new jobs and help uplift the country’s educational system.
This he shared with CNN Philippines’ New Day resident technology anchor Andrei Felix on its March 14 episode. Donovan added, “Asia’s eLearning market is presently at around USD7 billion, while the Philippines’ eLearning market is pegged at around USD40 million.”
These attractive numbers, he explained, are complemented by factors that put the country on the eLearning spotlight: its strategic location in Southeast Asia, its English-speaking population, and the capability of Filipinos to provide animation, content and excellent service. All these make it possible for the country to become the prime hub in the global eLearning map.
“eLearning no longer just stands for ‘electronic learning’—it also means ‘learning everywhere,’ ‘learning from everywhere’ and ‘excellent learning’,” Donovan further explained. He continued that by combining technology and existing learning facilities, eLearning can bring best-class education to far-flung places in the Philippines at much more cost-effective ways.
