NEW HORIZONS: ACCELERATING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT THROUGH INCLUSIVE BUSINESS IN COLOMBIA

Posted By Liza Curcio, Aspen Institute, Monday, December 11, 2017
We launched the third in our country-focused inclusive business report series in Bogota, Colombia to an audience of private sector actors, donors, government and UN agency representatives on 30 November 2017.
The new report, which joins previous reports published in Kenya and the Philippines this year, outlines the role that private sector can play in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and improving the lives of low income Colombians.
The report finds that with over a quarter of all Colombians living below the poverty line, efforts to tackle poverty and improve living, working and health conditions must be stepped up if Colombia is to achieve its SDG commitments by 2030. In his opening remarks, UNDP Colombia Country Director Pablo Ruiz highlighted the important role that companies can play – especially in their ability to innovate to address issues of poverty and social impact – as key players in achieving the SDGs in Colombia.
