Developing a Shared Agenda in 2010: How can the private sector and development organisations work better together to create more inclusive business opportunities for poor people?
Tuesday 23rd March 2010
|17.30-18.15||Introduction and panel presentations|
Partnerships between businesses, governments and development actors are already pioneering new and more inclusive business models that are helping to generate the growth crucial to poverty alleviation and the success of the MDGs. Building on this pioneering work must be a central part of the collective agenda for business and its development partners in the years ahead.
The first public event of the 2010 Business Action for Africa, Harvard Kennedy School, Department for Interntional Development (DFID) Event Series will explore how partnerships are helping businesses, donors, governments and other development organisations to build the capacity of poor producers to benefit from new inclusive business models, and will examine the lessons being learned on the ground.
