The Business Roundtable will provide an opportunity for business leaders and stakeholders to:
- Discuss the potential and benefits for cities to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in the light of pressing global issues of climate change and the need to build resilience.
- Exchange on high-impact initiatives that have the potential to accelerate progress in the SDG implementation, highlighting the critical role of private sector players, innovators, and operators in cities around the world.
- Network with business leaders and UN-Habitat experts prior to the UN-Habitat Assembly to establish synergies toward future projects.
The roundtable will bring together private sector leaders, philanthropists, development banks, investors, member states, and UN entities, with the goal of sharing concrete solutions to closing the financing gap and scale-up urban resilience solutions by drawing on the unique perspectives and expertise of a diverse audience. It will explore ways to leverage private sector expertise and resources to support the implementation of UN-Habitat’s New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.
