UNDP at Paris Peace Forum 2022

This year’s Paris Peace Forum (11 – 12 Nov), the 5th Edition of the annual event will focus on the theme ‘Riding out the Multicrisis’. The UNDP SDG Impact is among the 60 projects selected, to be featured this year. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been a proud partner of the Paris Peace Forum since its creation in 2018.

At a time when the world is facing multiple crises, the 2022 Paris Peace Forum will focus on rethinking global cooperation mechanisms, heeding the diversity of stakeholders’ narratives and priorities, so that it can function again and overcome the multi-dimensional crises affecting us all, in a more inclusive way.

About the selected project:

UNDP SDG Impact, part of the UNDP Sustainable Finance Hub is a flagship initiative to help the private sector accelerate private capital. UNDP SDG Impact is making it easier for investors and businesses to realize their sustainability and SDG intentions as well as commitments in a holistic, credible and accountable way.

The SDG Impact Standards are voluntary management standards designed to guide businesses and investors on their sustainability journeys. Organized around 12 implementation actions, they provide a universal framework and management approach for embedding sustainability and the SDGs in all decision-making across organizational purpose, strategy, internal management, disclosure and governance practices. The SDG Investor Map helps organizations direct their activities and capital to where it can have the most impact on SDG outcomes in developing markets. It is a country-level market intelligence tool that pinpoints where investment themes and business models that are aligned to national sustainable development needs, government policy priority areas and investor interest overlap. The data that spans over 400 investment opportunity areas in 23 countries and counting, is available for free on the SDG Investor Platform.
