Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) in Kenya is highly complex requiring a multi-sectoral approach for comprehensive management. This complexity is worsened by the acceptance of Sexual Violence within a patriarchal society, harmful traditional and cultural practices, breakdown of law and order especially during electoral periods, all heightened by abject poverty. There are numerous programs on interventions costing millions in local and foreign currency, however grave gaps still exist at key levels across all sectors even after years of continued intervention.
In this webinar, the UN Global Compact provide an overview of their “2020 Vision” and hear from engaged stakeholders on the importance of peace, justice and strong institutions (goal 16) to sustainable business – not only as the foundation for business responsibilities but also for business success.
Advancing goal 17, this report seeks to inspire and guide companies, governments, cities and others involved in the implementation of Agenda 2030 to tap into the private capital markets and benefit from cheaper and more reliable capital to support the implementation of their SDG strategies. It introduces a roadmap for mainstream SDG bonds and corporate SDG finance to tap into the largest assets classes and respond to the specific financing challenges in emerging markets.
To advance goal 16, this report helps businesses to learn more about the UN Global Compact Collection Action Project in partnership with five Global Compact Local Networks in Brazil, Japan, Kenya, Nigeria and Egypt. This, in turn, will enable them to improve anti-corruption practices within their individual organisations and to engage other businesses, Governments and civil society in anti-corruption Collective Action.
Contributing to SDGs 1 and 8, this report discusses how the adoption of pro-growth policies tends to result in lower levels of poverty, especially through opportunities for job creation. In particular, it calls for policies that promote greater access to credit and the protection of minority investors in order to reduce such levels of poverty.
This guide explores the role of corporate finance and investments in scaling finance for the SDGs, including how FDI, financial intermediation and public-private partnerships can be a source of finance for less liquid SDG investments that cannot be invested directly by portfolio or institutional investors. This includes providing access to finance in countries with less developed financial markets or for SDG solutions that are too small or illiquid to attract portfolio investors. The report contributes to SDGs 8, 16 and 17.
