Held right after our Africa Summit and on the eve of the European Development Days, this invitation-only policy maker’s dinner will look at the main challenges in achieving the SDGs for public, private and civil society sectors. Participants will be encouraged to be frank and to speak openly about their experiences and ideas – and give their recommendations.
This event is part of our Development Policy Forum (DPF), which brings together a number of important development actors, including the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the European Investment Bank (EIB), the United Nations and the World Bank. Reflecting the growing role of the private sector in development, the DPF has now welcomed Coca-Cola and Eni to the forum. The DPF contributes to the global and European conversation on inclusive development. Through its activities and publications, the DPF reflects the rapidly-changing global debate on growth and development and seeks to encourage a multi-stakeholdered, fresh, up-to-date thinking on the multiple challenges facing the development community.

THE QUICKENING COUNTDOWN TO 2030 - Learning from each other: The SDGs’ successes and failures
It's the most ambitious project in the history of humankind. If successful, it would solve many of civilization's most pressing challenges. Launched in 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to end poverty, tackle climate change and fight inequalities, while promising to “leave no-one behind”. As international organizations, governments and practitioners around the world focus their work plans and strategies on the 2030 Agenda, data are being collected, reported on and organized in visualizations that can begin to tell the story of where we stand vis-à-vis our 2030 ambitions. Four years on, what have been the main challenges in achieving the SDGs for public, private and civil society sectors, and how can we learn from each other’s failures and success stories? How to bring people around a theme and work on building a conducive environment for development?
