Register/website: Sustainable Development Impact Summit 2017
Description: Delivering on the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris climate agreement will require accelerating public-private cooperation and deploying new technological solutions. The Sustainable Development Impact Summit aims to advance both by providing a multistakeholder platform for concerted action.
The World Economic Forum will work closely with leaders from government, business, academia and civil society who will be present in New York during the United Nations General Assembly to:
• 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.
