Visit the Bizfor2030's blog for their most recent post recapping the sessions of the 2nd SDG Business Forum held on July 19, 2016 during the High Level Political Forum. Business for 2030 helped curate one of the day’s sessions, which featured a 17 person ‘rapid fire’ review of how 17 different representatives of the private sector were addressing each SDG. The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the UN Global Compact were the lead organisers of the SDG Business Forum, which had over 400 participants in attendance throughout the day.
The commissioner for rural economy and agriculture of the African Union, Rhoda Peace Tumusiime, has called on the private sector to invest in agriculture to increase productivity and food security in Africa.
