United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Egypt and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development collaborate to deliver a two-day Social Impact Management training course
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Egypt, in collaboration with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), are implementing a two-day Social Impact Management training course developed and delivered by Social Value UK, to be held on Feb 12th and 13th, 2019.
The focus of the course is on the information needed to measure, manage and optimise the positive social and environmental impact of business undertakings. Complementing efforts by the Government of Egypt in capitalizing on new opportunities and expanding the economy, the enhanced adoption by enterprises of environmentally and socially sustainable business strategies and practices will have significant positive implications. In the Middle East and North Africa, such practices have the potential to unlock more than US$637 billion and generate 12.4 million jobs by 2030.
Globally, it is estimated that an additional US$2.4 trillion a year will be needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across the world by 2030, with US$1.6 trillion needed globally for infrastructure financing alone.
