Global Solutions Summit 2019

The Global Solutions Summit 2019 will convene on May 13, 2019 at United Nations Headquarters in New York City.  The theme of this year’s Summit is “Building A More Effective and Efficient Ecosystem for Scaling Technology Deployment for the SDGs.”

The guiding philosophy behind GSS 2019 is as follows: Technology deployment does not happen automatically.  Nor does it take place in a vacuum.  It requires an effective and efficient deployment ecosystem – one that empowers all key players in the deployment process to find each other and join forces.  In some locales, essential pieces of this deployment ecosystem are missing entirely.  In other locales, many of the constituent elements of a vibrant and effective deployment ecosystem already exist, but they are fragmented and disconnected.  In either case, the net effect is the same — deployment efforts to implement the SDGs are less scalable and effective than they would be if potential partners could join forces and operate within a more coherent deployment ecosystem.  GSS 2019 will discuss specific programs that multilateral and bilateral development agencies, national and local governments, social enterprises and the private sector can implement to create a stronger and more vibrant local deployment ecosystem.

Registration is free.
