Private Sector involvement in Post-2015 Development Agenda is currently one of the most relevant topics in the International Development Sector. In 2000, United Nations launched The Global Compact as a call for the committed of Private Sector with the 2015 Millennium Development Goals. That was a cause of change: thousands of big and small companies made for the first time a reflection about their responsibility with the global society and if their role for solving the most urgent problems of the human being.
Currently, The Global Compact of United Nations is encouraging the role of Private Sector in the Post 2015 Agenda as a transversal and inherent topic. The main message is that private sector involvement in Post – 2015 Agenda must be real. The dialogue is now focused on how companies can support the 10 global priorities that would be probably established as definite areas for the new Millennium Development Goals (Climate & Energy; Education; Food & Agriculture; Governance & Human Rights; Health; Infrastructure & Technology; Peace & Stability; Poverty; Water & Sanitation; Women’s Empowerment).
In this sense, there is a great opportunity for global Inclusive and Sustainable Growth strategies associated to the future Millennium Development Goals, where the Private Sector can be an important agent. We know it because of in our 29 years of work, we have been witness that the private sector can play a leading roll in fighting against poverty.
