The World Economic Forum (WEF) has organised The Sustainable Development Impact Summit with the objective of delivering on the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris climate agreement.
Therefore, in order to achieve the full objectives of the Sustainable Development Goals, accelerating public-private cooperation and deploying new technological solutions will be required to fast-track targets.
Furthermore, the event aims to advance both by providing a multistakeholder platform for concerted action.
WEF will also be working closely with leaders from government, business, academia and civil society who will be present in New York during the United Nations General Assembly to achieve the following:
- Increase the impact of existing multistakeholder initiatives
- Catalyse new partnerships and alliances
- Explore how the advanced technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution could be better leveraged for sustainable development.
Date: September 18-19, 2017
Venue: New York, USA
