6 necessary steps to make the SDGs a reality
Wednesday, July 20, 2016
Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) calls for concerted efforts to galvanize private sector investment in numerous SDG-linked sectors: infrastructure development, health and education, agriculture and food security, and a host of other areas of social, environmental and economic challenges.
Building an effective compact between the public and private sectors to mobilize and channel investment towards the SDGs will demand transformative action over a broad range of areas.
The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development’s (UNCTAD) action plan for private investment in the SDGs puts forward policy options in the form of focused action packages in specific segments of SDG investment, designed to promote a “big push” by the international community and national policy makers for private investment in sustainable development.
