Multistakeholder practices enabling sustainable development

11 November 2015 - A Workshop on Other in João Pessoa, Brazil

Agenda

Multistakeholder processes aim to bring together representatives from different sectors, including business, civil society, government, and others, to address a challenge at hand. There have been many examples of successful multistakeholder processes in addressing a range of the sustainable development goals (e.g., addressing healthcare or other humanitarian crises, delivering education to remote areas, creating mobile payment schemes), developing policy framework principles, and improving public services.

In this roundtable, speakers with practical experience are invited to share specific examples of multistakeholder practices, identify challenges that need to be overcome, and how they were resolved. The roundtable will summarize the examples discussed to present concrete evidence of the viability of multistakeholder practices in addressing sustainable development goals, and provide further support for IGF mandate renewal in the WSIS+10 review.
