P4G Initiative Launches in New York to Accelerate Sustainable Growth Through Innovative Partnerships

Today at the UN headquarters, leaders from government, business and civil society launched P4G, a pioneering new initiative to catalyze solutions for inclusive, sustainable economic growth.

P4G will create a space for innovative partnerships with businesses, national and city leaders, financiers, and community development advocates to develop and deploy powerful solutions in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. Partners include the governments of Chile, Denmark, Ethiopia, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, and Vietnam, the C40 network of 91 major cities and leaders from business and international organizations.

Prime Minister of Denmark Lars Løkke Rasmussen and Chilean President Michelle Bachelet addressed the gathering, underscoring the importance of partnerships that can accelerate sustainable development across sectors and national borders.

Ethiopia Launches P4G National Platform

The Ethiopian government has launched a P4G national platform as part of its ambitious plan to achieve development through green growth. P4G (Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030), supported by the Danish government, is a space for innovative partnerships with businesses, national and city leaders, financiers, and community development advocates to work towards solutions in support of sustainable and inclusive development.

Speaking at the launch, which took place on the sidelines of the Global Green Growth Conference, Ethiopia’s Minister of Environment, Dr. Gemeldo Dallen Tussie, said Ethiopia, like other countries affected by the changing climate, needs to forge coalitions with different players to build resilience and sustainable growth.

"Involving the private sector plays a very important role if we are to meet the national and international long-term targets. I believe private-public partnerships will be critical in meeting the sustainable development goals and my country remains committed to encouraging and also closely working with the private sector," said the minister.

P4G Funding Opportunities for 2018

During its participation in the World Economic Forum, P4G will discuss the framework for its 2018 funding process, which will support public-private partnerships that have the potential to achieve specific global development goals through market-based actions.

Applications for funding will be posted on the site on February 5, 2018.
