Business in Development Symposium
Businesses, civil society, policy makers and international organisations gathered in Vienna on June 30th 2014 to explore new ways to align business and development goals.
With financial flows of private investments exceeding official development assistance, businesses become ever more important in deciding what shape the new post-2015 development agenda will take. Measuring business impacts on development however becomes critical for effective engagement and collaboration – one of the central themes of Symposium discussions.
The Symposium was hosted by the Institute for Managing Sustainability at the Vienna University of Economics and Business together with the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) and the Austrian Institute for Collaboration in Development Cooperation (ICEP).
