Private Sector Roundtable

Innovation and Partnerships for a New Urban Agenda

Facilitated by the Urban Private Partners initiative of UN-Habitat, this event will bring together business leaders and representatives of the leading global corporate social responsibility (CSR) networks to share insights on inclusive and sustainable planning for better cities.

The Roundtable will have a special focus on innovation to scale-up partnerships that help to accelerate change towards a New Urban Agenda. The Roundtable will result in participants leaving the session with a stronger idea of how to collaborate with like-minded partners and the United Nations and make contributions to key recommendations in preparation for the Post-2015 process and the Habitat III Conference in 2016.
