Role of Private Sector in Development

An active engagement of the private sector is critical for the much needed acceleration in the progress for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other internationally agreed development commitments.

Through its core business activities, inclusive market practices and above all on-going corporate social responsibility activities, the private sector has proved its pivotal role in ensuring sustainable development and contributing to job creation, growth and expanded access to products and services. It is in this context, the Government of Turkey and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) agreed to establish the Istanbul International Center for Private Sector in Development.
