A practical Roadmap to systematically engage business as a partner in development
This ‘Roadmap’ sets out a systematic approach to engaging with business as a partner in development. It recommends five essential areas for action within which government, development agencies, business organisations, and civil society each have their roles to play. Taken together and tailored to a particular country’s context, these actions have the potential to create a sea-change to achieve the goal of partnerships between governments and business delivering their full potential in the global fight against poverty through sustainable development.
Implementing the Roadmap will build a more strategic approach which supports existing individual initiatives, identifies gaps, and builds the necessary structures and capacities so that the power of business is harnessed to drive development.
