Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted on September 25, 2015 by 193 countries as a follow up to the Millennium Development Goals, have immense opportunities for partnerships between Government, Business, Civil Society and Legislators. These goals are bringing together stakeholders from various sectors to achieve the common aim of sustainable development by exploring synergies between sustainability and inclusivity.
This forum will look at how the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a global agenda may serve as a reference framework that can support Parliamentarians, companies and civil society organisations in improving their engagement in a way that contributes to sustainable development. It will focus on sustainability best practice within organisations, creating resilience in business and CSOs and ways to implement change. The forum speakers and
partners will provide insights into how they are interweaving sustainability practices within their organisations, with CSOs, navigating change and the differences they are making within national and multinational companies and small business and how the convergence of corporate resources with the knowledge and expertise of civil society organisations are key in achieving the sustainable development goals. The role of Parliamentarians is also important
to achieve the SDGs.
