This course will guide us through an introductory framework on how to engage and set up partnerships. Interviews with and presentations by UN delegates, business representatives and academics will introduce us to case studies and concrete examples to target specific goals, including inclusive economic growth for poverty eradication; water and sanitation; food security and nutrition; gender considerations; and the protection of refugees and vulnerable migrants.

The main objective of the course is to bring together UN agencies, national governments, academia, civil society and business to address the challenges of poverty. The Conference will be organized for UN delegates, UN staff, the private sector, international financial institutions, top academics and practitioners working on relevant issues, business associations, and relevant civil society representatives. The goal of the conference is to add a sustaining and longer-term outlet from which to engage with constituents, leading to greater learning, exploration of possibilities for partnerships, and development of a Community of Practice – where government officials have a standing resource from which to engage further with the business sector.

This course will provide you with an understanding of why the United Nations and the business community are vital to each other to obtain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this course, we will learn about the 17 SDGs, why they matter for business, and why the UN and governments need businesses to successfully implement them.

The main learning objectives are for participants to:

  • Understand the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Develop insight into why engaging business in the delivery of the SDGs is crucial for the UN and governments
  • Learn why getting involved in the implementation of the SDGs is beneficial for businesses
  • Acquire the tools and the framework to engage (as) business as a partner in sustainable development through case studies, including good practices and lessons learned
