Thirteenth Session, Committee on Innovation, Competitiveness and Public-Private Partnerships, 25-27 March 2019, Geneva, Switzerland

GIWEH actively participated in the Committee on Innovation which was part of discussions on Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) in Geneva during the 25-27 March 2019.

The Working group on PPPs is an intergovernmental body established in 2016 and it comprises over 2000 experts coming from the public and private sector, NGOs and international organizations. The session was focusing on implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. PPPs are needed to close the infrastructure gap, which far exceeds the fiscal, technical and administrative capacities of Governments in low and middle-income countries. Innovation is needed to drive and sustain inclusive economic growth within planetary boundaries.
