Why private sector partnerships matter
The development landscape has evolved in recent decades. And one of the major changes over that period has been the greater emphasis on the role of the private sector and private foundations as development actors. helping to tackle the most pressing global and regional challenges countries around the world today.
For the past three years, the EBRD has stepped up its active engagement with the philanthropic community, finding ways to develop partnerships to scale up impact.
Within this community, there is an emerging consensus around the key priorities for the development agenda: combating climate change, facilitating digitalisation, fostering financial and social inclusion, addressing the refugee and migration crises, promoting good governance and anti-corruption, investing in infrastructure, amongst others.
These priorities bring the EBRD, private sector corporates and philanthropic organisations into ever-closer alignment with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, helping to tackle the most pressing global and regional challenges.
