Helvetas Symposium: Private Sector Engagement – from Aspirations to Reality

Through partnerships with large companies, development organizations and donors hope to achieve impact and reach with their operations, sustainability, and innovation. This will be key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the same time, such collaborations carry risks since the goals and values of the unlike partners differ. What does it take to reach benefits for the poor and the companies based on the sustainable use of natural resources? And how can mutual understanding be fostered and pitfalls be avoided?
