The SDGs In Action Forum is an annual high-level event that brings together leaders from the private sector, UN Member States, UN agencies, and international organizations so that they can leverage their experience, access to market, and resources towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The private sector is well-positioned to bring sustainable long-term solutions to achieving the SDGs by the 2030 target. Likewise, the SDGs present significant opportunities for the private sector to open up new markets and attract new private investments in sustainable development.
Using Chatham House Rules, the Forum is intentionally designed to be interactive and intimate with the key goal to convene and create partnerships among the different stakeholders participating in the event. A report (with non-attribution) will be produced after the meeting, summarizing key topics and solutions.
This year's Forum will focus on three major themes. In subsequent years, the Forum's themes will expand to include every UN SDG. To learn more about this year's three Forum themes read below.
