Arab Forum for Sustainable Development: Catalyzing Private Sector Engagement in the Decade of Action

Tuesday 30 March 2021, 11:45 – 13:15 Beirut time, Online

Background and Objective

The COVID-19 pandemic altered the journey to achieving the 2030 Agenda revealing fragile interconnected systems and deep-seated inequalities within all corners of the globe. What has been illuminated however is the power of the private sector to mobilize its resources for the betterment of its stakeholders and communities in which it is embedded, thus emerging as a critical partner to sustainable development.
As we look to recovery and rebuild, in this session we will explore a suite of powerful and practical examples within the Arab world from youth skilling to ensure employability to the empowerment of women in the workplace, and to supporting business resilience among SMEs. This session, comprised of two panels, will present perspectives and remedies on how we can recover better, and most importantly, together, through enhanced accountability, trust and cooperation to set a new course for the Arab world where the SDGs are at the core of business strategy and practices.

This Special Session will be organized over Zoom at this:
