WHAT IS PRIVATE SECTOR ENGAGEMENT THROUGH DEVELOPMENT CO-OPERATION AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Private sector engagement through development co-operation leverages the innovation potential of and additional finance from the private sector for sustainable development. The development co-operation community is scaling up its engagement with the private sector in order to build inclusive markets and value chains across key sectors to achieve the 2030 Agenda. Members of both communities are increasingly working together on areas of mutual interest that promote sustainable development with a special focus on reaching the furthest behind. The Global Partnership fosters inclusive dialogue among different actors to build trust and promote more effective partnerships.
