Are we fit for partnering? While the Addis Ababa Action Agenda spells out the financial needs for implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, we need to develop innovative modalities for effective development partnerships. There is still untapped potential regarding the level of public-private engagement. How can policies, procedures and instruments be adapted create incentives for engagement and partnership?
Please join our session ‘The role of the private sector as partner for sustainable development: turning rhetoric into reality’ at the European Development Days in Brussels on 7 June 2017, from 4:15-5:30 PM.
The session will present key outcomes from the Second High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership in Nairobi. Questions for the panel and public discussion are: What are incentives of the private sector to engage in partnerships with other development actors such as governments, civil society and academia? What are best practices?
The session is jointly organised by the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Co-operation and Development, DEVCO.
