Partnerships between businesses, governments and development actors are tackling constraints in the investment climates of developing economies and helping business to invest in ways that contribute more to development. What can government do to best support business? And how can business help governments to build capacity and develop appropriate policy? What is the role of donors? What barriers to partnership exist between these stakeholders?
This event, the sixth in the series on ‘Harnessing the power on business for development Impact’, will explore progress being made to create the incentives and effective institutional frameworks that make it easier to do business and invest in developing countries, and encourage transparency, good governance and innovation. How are initiatives such as the Investment Climate Facility (ICF), and challenge funds helping governments and business to advance business and development goals?
