Of the 1.3 billion people who are multidimensionally poor, more than two-thirds of them—886 million—live in middle-income countries
Welcoming entrepreneurs and impact investors on October 9th - let's forge partnerships to support the achievement of the SDGs!
2019 is the first year that GSIV, the Growth Stage Impact Ventures for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) selection is being organized, a collaboration between UNDP, EPFL Tech4Impact, Orange, and SAP.
“UNDP is proud to closely support countries to achieve the SDGs in a wide range of areas such as efforts to reduce poverty and inequality; the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies including access to education and support to job creation; as well as a broad range of actions to tackle climate change -- UNDP has the expertise, networks, innovative methods and global footprint in 170 countries to make a difference.”
“Conservation finance is a sub-set of environmental finance” explains Tenke Zoltani, Development Finance Advisor at UNDP Geneva.
“Every day, thousands of local communities and indigenous peoples around the world are quietly implementing innovative nature-based solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change. The Equator Prize is both a recognition of their exceptional ideas and a way to showcase the power of people and grassroots communities to bring about real change.”
