Business for Peace Flagship Projects 2016


Participants will learn about the Business for Peace flagship projects for 2016. These projects focus on private sector engagement in humanitarian response and advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by supporting peace. The projects provide concrete engagement opportunities for participants to work with Business for Peace, link their local operations with global priorities, and contribute to the achievement of SDG16. We will provide an overview on what the UN Global Compact has done thus far to address the refugee crisis by highlighting the Business Action Pledge in Response to the Refugee Crisis. For more information on the UN Global Compact's approach to advancing private sector contributions to peace, participants are invited to review the resource: "Advancing the Sustainable Development Goals by Supporting Peace: How Business can Contribute".
