UN launches platform to boost public-private partnerships

United Nations officials are planning to launch a new platform to assist with scaling up public-private partnerships (PPP/P3) to meet the organization’s Sustainable Development Goals. Outgoing UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon announced the new partnership platform to generate financial solutions at a meeting between global treasury and foreign affairs officials and the leaders of global financial institutions. The Sustainable Development Goals would cost at least $1 trillion per year to achieve in order to meet targets by the year 2030. The platform is meant to engage governments, civil society, philanthropic organizations, entrepreneurs, investors, banks, project developers and development finance institutions.
