This HELVETAS symposium looks at how development organizations and donors partner with large companies to achieve impact and reach with their operations.
Through partnerships with large companies, development organizations and donors hope to achieve impact and reach with their operations, as well as sustainability and innovation. This will be key for achieving the SDGs. At the same time, such collaborations carry risks, since goals and values of the unlike partners differ. What does it take to reach benefits for the poor and the companies, based on a sustainable use of natural resources? And how can mutual understanding be fostered and pitfalls be avoided?
