(Part 2) Partnering for Resilient and Inclusive Societies: Contributions of the Private Sector - 2018 ECOSOC Partnerships Forum
4 Apr 2018 -  Theme: "Partnering for Resilient and Inclusive Societies: Contributions of the Private Sector".

The private sector is expected to play a significant role in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. While recent inter-governmental discussion on the role of the partnerships have been largely around how to create an enabling environment to incentivize the engagement of the private sector in development efforts, there is a growing attention accorded to the quality and result of their engagement -- towards promoting more inclusive economic growth and building more resilient and equitable societies. This is a crosscutting endeavour, essential to the achievement of all SDGs.

The afternoon session will explore the potential of establishing partnerships with the private sector to harness the potential of big data in the achievement of the SDGs, especially towards promoting the inclusion and participation of “vulnerable” groups.
