Description


The Role of Private Sector in Prevention

Peace is often considered a task for the government and its multilateral partners. While the government has a central role to play in building a more peaceful world, companies large and small, can also become more active actors to support and scale-up such efforts. The private sector can play a positive role in prevention and in sustaining peace.

The SDG Fund, Concordia, and the International Peace Institute are organizing this event to discuss findings of our joint research paper “A New Way of Doing Business: Partnering for Peace and Sustainable Development.” The report discusses the role of private sector in achieving the 2030 Agenda particularly SDG 5 on gender equality, SDG 8 on economic growth, SDG 16 on peaceful and inclusive society, and SDG 17 on partnership. Forging a strong and effective global partnership between the public and private sectors will be pivotal in determining the fate of the SDGs and building a more peaceful and inclusive world. The event will highlight what is needed to forge such new partnerships.
