A Decade of Action on SDG Delivery – How to strengthen the partnership with the private sector? The Covid-19 health pandemic has disrupted the world of work. This employment and economic crisis is threatening to undermine any progress made vis-à-vis Agenda 2030. Now is the time for bold action to meet the targets of the UN Decade of Action. The global employers’ community is ready to join forces with governments and the multilateral community to respond forcefully to this crisis while maintaining and increasing momentum towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
