The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are being formulated by the international community will have very significant implications for investment needs. The private sector investment in SDGs can help structure efforts to mobilise funds, to channel them to SDG sectors, and to maximise impacts and mitigate drawbacks.

This session will discover the positive impacts of investment in SDG segments, the challenges faced in LDCs and the opportunities which exist.
