Representative of UN agencies, UN Regional Commissions, academia, civil society, and the private sector share multifaceted perspectives and recommendations for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a blog series managed by the UN Division for Sustainable Development (DSD).

DSD developed the blog series for the 2017 session of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), which took place from 10-19 July 2017 at the UN Headquarters in New York, US.

Irge Olga Aujouannet, World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD), writes that business will have a critical role in achieving the SDGs, as a source of innovation, finance, economic growth and employment.

Aujouannet stresses the SDGs as “a win-win” for business and the world.
