This session will explore the critical role of business in realising the 2030 Agenda, the importance of the UNGPs as a framework that can guide and provide a level playing field for businesses – and the challenges of promoting and applying the UNGPs in the specific context of the Pacific.

Experiences in localising the SDGs will be shared and the panel and session participants will discuss how the UNGPs can also be best localised to the Pacific in the context of COVID-recovery and the imperative to build-back better.

This session aims to:
  • Explore the linkages between the UNGPs and SDGs;
  • Build awareness of the right to development, UNGPs and SDGs;
  • Enable multi-stakeholder dialogue; and
  • Identify some recommendations for localising the UNGPs to the Pacific.

Session organized by The Diplomacy Training Program.
