These regional one day events are part of a series of events held primarily in preparation for the World Association for  Sustainable Development (WASD) 16th International Annual Conference co-organized and hosted by the United Nations Joint Inspection Unit (JIU) , Geneva, Palais de Nations, 10-12 April 2018. It will introduce the latest update from JIU Review of the United Nations system on Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015, and its 17 goals. The JIU review focuses on the private sector partnership in the context of the 2030 Agenda for SD and explore ways and means to improve the contribution of the private sector to the implementation of the Agenda, and stimulate its interest to engage in partnership with the United Nations system organizations as well as to improve efficiency in the use of resources. Both JIU and WASD are inspired by the conviction that the 2030 Agenda and its 17 goals provides momentum for a renewed UN engagement with the private sector.

These events provide a golden opportunity for participating entities to:
