United Nations, NYC

 

Government officials, corporate leaders, NGOs and investors from around the world gathered at the United Nations on 23 May 2017 to engage in a focused dialogue on

Public-Private Partnerships (PPP): Member State Initiatives to Ensure the Success
of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs
)

hosted by the Permanent Mission of Suriname, in cooperation with the World Development Foundation.

“Good, far-reaching policies earning sincere endorsement, will not grow nor endure without private investment” said Henry Mac Donald, Permanent Representative of Suriname to the United Nations, to open the conference. Ambassador Mac Donald went on to further explain that private sector investors have been successfully able to obtain financial returns on their bottom lines while at the same time benefitting the bottom half of the world as they struggle for sustainability.

 The session was inaugurated by the President of the General Assembly, Peter Thomson, followed by an in depth speech on the topic by the Principal Representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) for the Caribbean and Latin America.   

 The morning panel sessions underscored the importance of the United Nations, in its role as a global convener and catalyzer of people, to serve as a platform to bring the private and public sectors together in an effort to harness the power of all stakeholders. A highlight of the morning included a candid discussion between Michel Martelly, former President of Haiti, and Amir Dossal, Founder and President of the Global Partnerships Forum. President Martelly emphasized that poverty serves as the ultimate obstruction to development and it is outside investment, through public-private partnerships, that can serve as the first link in the chain to improving lives.

 In the afternoon panel sessions Ambassador Mac Donald along with His Excellency Rudolph Michael Ten-Pow, Permanent Representative of Guyana to the United Nations, unveiled a new sustainable eco-tourism plan for the Caribbean Guyana Shield Area in recognition of the UN International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development 2017. Ambassador Ten-Pow, quoting a sentiment made earlier by Mr. Dossal, stressed that it was time “to start doing what we need to do” and encouraged countries to create bankable projects that will be able to attract the investment sector. In a later panel corporate leaders echoed this same notion and instructed both sectors to focus on their own core competences, while also recognizing that a shared mission is not necessary so long as the goals remain complementary.

 Since the private sector accounts for roughly 90% of jobs globally, public-private partnerships will be integral to implanting and verifying the success of the U.N. 2030 Agenda. In line with SDG 17 (the Revitalization of Global Partnerships), private industry and civil society will need to share the responsibility of building new economies. The public and private sectors, along with governments, must come together to set standards and goals in order to drive this global initiative.
