Specialised Policy Dialogue PRIVATE SECTOR ENGAGEMENT THROUGH DEVELOPMENT CO-OPERATION
MAKING PRIVATE SECTOR PARTNERSHIPS WORK:
HOW CAN DEVELOPMENT CO-OPERATION CONTRIBUTE?
Businesses are applying creativity, investments and innovation to solve sustainable development challenges. With this, they make a tremendous contribution to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sus-tainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By working closely to-gether, public and private actors can mobilise additional private finance, link such investments with an impact imperative and ensure private sector partnerships at the country level are delivering the intended results and impact.
A SPECIALISED POLICY DIALOGUE: WHAT SHOULD WE LEARN?
As part of the OECD Week on Private Finance for Sustainable Development, this Specialised Pol-icy Dialogue of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC) will be an open and inclusive dialogue among all relevant partners to accelerate progress towards more effective PSE through development co-operation. It brings businesses and investors together with senior policy makers and practitioners from governments, civil society, trade unions, parliaments and international organisations for a frank and open dialogue.
Building on the emerging issue areas outlined above, the primary objective of the dialogue is to foster a common understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced when implementing PSE projects at the country level and to shape PSE principles and guidelines to help scale up solutions with all partners and across sectors and regions, in the run up to the Global Partnership’s Senior-Level Meeting in July 2019 in New York. Whereas others have focused on mobilisation of private sector resources for sustainable development at national and international level, the work of the Global Partnership focuses on effectiveness in project and programme implementation at the coun-try level.
The dialogue will address a number of key questions:
> How can PSE, mobilised through development co-operation, help build prosperous socie-ties by sharing risks, reaching those most in need and delivering effectively against agreed results?
> How can public, private & civil society actors build trust to support effective PSE at country level?
> What are the roles and expectations of different actors in PSE, and how to harness their contributions to scale up successful PSE projects?
> What should be elements of principles and guidelines for effective PSE through develop-ment co-operation?
