The Action Plan for Private Investment in the SDGs is meant to serve as a point of reference for policymakers at national and international levels in their discussions on ways and means to implement the SDGs and the formulation of operational strategies for investing in the SDGs.

It has been designed as a “living document” and incorporates an online version that aims to establish an interactive, open dialogue, inviting the international community to exchange views, suggestions and experiences.

It thus constitutes a basis for further stakeholder engagement. UNCTAD aims to provide the platform for such engagement through its biennial World Investment Forum, and online through the Investment Policy Hub.

UNCTAD proposes a Strategic Framework for Private Investment in the SDGs

A Strategic Framework for Private Investment in the SDGs addresses key policy challenges and solutions, related to:

  • Providing Leadership to define guiding principles and targets, to ensure policy coherence, and to galvanize action.

  • Mobilizing funds for sustainable development – raising resources in financial markets or through financial intermediaries that can be invested in sustainable development.

  • Channelling funds to sustainable development projects – ensuring that available funds make their way to concrete sustainable-developmentoriented investment projects on the ground in developing countries, and especially LDCs.

  • Maximizing impact and mitigating drawbacks – creating an enabling environment and putting in place appropriate safeguards that need to accompany increased private sector engagement in often sensitive sectors.
