Alleviating Poverty through Inclusive Business: Policy Dialogue on Building an Enabling Environment for Inclusive Business through Public Private Collaboration
Under the German G20 Presidency, the Inclusive Business Action Network (IBAN) with United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and International Finance Corporation (IFC) through the G20 Global Platform on Inclusive Business (GPIB) are organizing a one day conference, titled, ‘Alleviating Poverty through Inclusive Business: Policy Dialogue on Building an Enabling Environment for Inclusive Business through Public Private Collaboration’ on May 5th, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.
GPIB and IBAN jointly invite policymakers, business representatives and other enablers from G20 and non-G20 countries to build upon previous GPIB workshops held during the G20 Turkish and Chinese Presidencies in order to continue to advance inclusive business policies. The conference will focus on ongoing peer-to-peer learning and knowledge exchange by establishing new alliances with concrete action plans and agreeing on a follow-up agenda.
