Description

Traditional approaches to development have not always managed to build effective or sustainable partnerships with the corporate sector.

This event will showcase forthcoming work from ODI’s Private Sector and Markets team which suggests that by sidelining the corporate voice from development debates, we stymie our ability to influence the impact of large investments into the world’s poorest countries. Incorporating senior voices from major multi-national businesses, this event will look at the facts and figures behind corporate involvement in developing countries and encourage discussion about how the development and corporate sectors can better integrate their approaches to achieve pro-poor outcomes.
