As people from around the world start to focus on how to implement the Sustainable Development Goals–the new ambitious vision for ending poverty and protecting our planet– they are exploring new ways of engaging and partnering with each other to achieve greater scale and systemic impact. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which sets out the SDGs envisions a “revitalized global partnership for sustainable development”.
This discussion will bring together representatives from business, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals Fund (SDG-F), the CSR Initiative at Harvard Kennedy School and Business Fights Poverty to explore the following questions:
1. What is the business and development case for increased UN-business engagement?
2. How can business most effectively engage in the SDGs, and how can the UN most effectively engage with business?
3. What should the priorities for action be in 2016 to strengthen UN-business partnerships?
