WBA hosts #SDGActionZone breakout session at UNGA 2020

Over the course of three days during the UN General Assembly on 22-24 September, the SDG Action Zone will convene leading thinkers, creators, and activists through frank debate, challenging discussions, inspiring showcases and interactive exhibitions to drive the exponential change urgently needed for people and our planet.

Alliances for impact: Unconventional partnerships

Recognising that unconventional partnerships are needed to not only get the international community back on track for achieving the SDGs but also for building back better following COVID-19, the WBA is excited to be hosting an interactive panel, which will aim to mobilise a broad range of constituencies, sectors, and change agents.

We will explore partnership building that can help supercharge a race to the top across the business community; recognise gaps; bring constituencies together beyond rhetorical commitments; but also make the invisible visible through efforts like strengthened financial inclusion and monitoring global supply chains.

If unconventional allies work to strengthen financing for development; position economies for sustainable investment; integrate new technologies; and maintain accountability not only can inequalities at the core of the challenge of the Decade of Action and COVID-19 be addressed, the international community will be more strongly positioned to navigate potential shocks in the future.
