Description

With the introduction of the Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations have helped shift the global narrative on development. No longer a topic focusing solely on alleviating poverty and increasing production, development now focuses on social and environmental impacts. Today, the leadership challenge is clear: it will be impossible to achieve the SDGs without accelerating a concerted effort from businesses, governments and civil society. On a practical level, how can we close the trust gap between these actors, and foster partnership instead?
