Business Action for Africa, Harvard Kennedy School Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative and The Partnering Initiative invite you to an event to discuss how best to harness business in the delivery of the ambitious new Post-2015 development agenda.
A panel of business, government and development representatives will discuss how to address the challenges of translating global development goals in to effective and sustained local action, how to enable transformational partnerships with business to enter the development mainstream, and how to establish effective accountability and governance mechanisms to underpin the Post- 2015 development framework.
Business Action for Africa, Harvard Kennedy School Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative and The Partnering Initiative will launch a new report at the event: “Building a New Global Partnership with Business”, which draws on insights from a wide range of business partnership case studies across Sub-Saharan Africa to set out recommendations on how best to unlock the full potential of business for a new era of development progress.
