UN Private Sector Meeting 2012
United Nations System Private Sector Focal Points Meeting, Vienna, 28-29 March 2012:
On 1 December 2011, the Second Committee of the UN General Assembly adopted a Resolution under item 26 (Towards Global Partnerships) that welcomes efforts by all relevant partners, including the private sector, to engage in development and recognizes the critical role the private sector plays in the realization of internationally agreed goals, including the Millennium Development Goals. This strong governmental support reinforces the mandate of the UN to engage in public-private partnerships that advance humanitarian and development objectives and provides recommendations for how the UN should work to further enhance collaboration with the private sector. This meeting focuses on a number of the priority issues identified in this Resolution.
