On 21 June Nestlé will hold their Creating Shared Value Forum in Côte d’Ivoire, with a focus on ‘Investing in Sustainable Development in Africa’. The forum will bring together business, civil society and government leaders from Africa and beyond to discuss a range of key topics affecting the African continent,
As the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set targets to address major socio-economic challenges such as food security, the double burden of malnutrition and management of scarce natural resources, the active engagement of all stakeholders, including the private sector, becomes critical.
The 2016 CSV Forum will also see the announcement of the winner of the CSV Prize for 2016, rewarding initiatives that reflect the spirit of creating shared value by addressing challenges in nutrition, water, or rural development. See the finalists in the videos below.
Tune in and watch the live webcast as Nestlé and their leadership team engages with panelists and participants in thoughtful discussions on how governments, civil society and the private sector can work together to accelerate sustainable development in Africa. This is an opportunity to listen to, and exchange ideas with, top experts in the field of nutrition, rural development and sustainable development.
