Panel on Collaborations & Partnerships and Engaging the Private Sector

Collaborations & Partnerships

This dynamic panel will discuss approaches and strategies that can bring together various sectors – including manufacturing, agriculture, energy, forestry, construction, information technology, etc. – to engage in and make an impact in Canada’s international development initiatives. Success of such initiatives depends on effective partnerships between government and pertinent sectors that foster trade opportunities, investment, innovation, sustainable development, and international security.

Engaging the Private Sector

This panel will discuss out-of-the-box approaches to engaging the private sector – from Canada and developing countries – in international development initiatives led by Canada. Discussions will emphasize the benefits and potential shortfalls by providing examples of how science, technology, and philanthropy/investors can work together toward the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals.
