Justice 10:30am – 1 pm Roundtable discussion1:

“Innovative Partnerships for resilient infrastructure, including
in countries in special situations”

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development addresses infrastructure across the agenda, in particular through Sustainable Development Goal 9, which commits the international community to building resilient infrastructure and promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization and innovation. Infrastructure is also vital in the delivery of the other 2017 Partnership Forum – 3 April-Page 2 sustainable development goals.

 According to the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA), investing in sustainable and resilient infrastructure, including transport, energy, water and sanitation for all, is a pre-requisite for achieving many of the goals. The roundtable discussion will explore the main challenges to infrastructure development in LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS, and the potential of public-private partnerships for infrastructure development. The Forum will also explore the implications of the integrated nature of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the commitments in the Paris Agreement for engaging in PPPs in infrastructure development, that are environmentally, socially
and economically sustainable.

 Moderator:
Mr. Rajesh Mirchandani, Vice President of Communications and Outreach,
Centre for Global Development

Speakers:
¨ Mr. Zhao Huxiang, President, International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA), Vice Chairman of China Merchants Group and Chairman of the Board of SINOTRANS
¨ Dr. Cheryl Martin, Head of Industries, Member of the Managing Board, World Economic Forum (WEF), and former Managing Director, Rohm and Haas

¨
Mr. Trevor Davies, Global Lead, International Development Assistance Services, KPMG
¨
 Mr. Elliott Harris, Director, UNEP Office, New York
 
Discussion questions:
 Under what circumstances are public-private partnerships (PPPs) most effective in addressing the challenges countries face in achieving the 2030 Agenda in general and SDG9 in particular?
How can PPPs be strengthened to better support resilient infrastructure, green industrialization and inclusive economic growth?
 What kinds of institutional, legal and regulatory framework are necessary to ensure effective public private partnerships (PPPs) in infrastructure throughout the partnership lifecycle?
What are the implications of these for regional PPPs in infrastructure?
 What must be done to ensure that recently announced commitments in the area of infrastructure development are effectively implemented?
How are the specific challenges faced by SIDS, LDCs and LLDCs being addressed?

 

Afternoon Session
3:00pm – 4:00pm Roundtable discussion 2

“Principles and guidelines governing UN associated partnerships”

 The Forum will continue the discussion arising from General Assembly resolution A/RES/70/224 which called on the Council to “hold a discussion on the best practices and ways to improve, inter alia, transparency, accountability and the sharing of experiences of multi-stakeholder partnerships and on the review and monitoring of these partnerships, including the role of Member States in the review and monitoring process”. The adherence to basic principles and guidelines for multistakeholder and other partnerships that are in the public domain contributes
 to transparency and accountability.

The discussion will provide an opportunity to deepen the discussions held at the ECOSOC Partnership Forum in 2016 and once again enabled Member States to consider possible ways in which to move forward.
