As part of the 131st IPU Assembly and the 2014 World Investment Forum, this session gathered parliamentarians from around the world in a multi-stakeholder dialogue with business executives, ministers and heads of international organizations to debate ways in which legislators can work with the private sector to help channel investment into SDG sectors and ensure development impact.

Elements for the debate

  • What are the legislative challenges for channeling private investment into SDG sectors?
  • How can the interaction between parliaments, policy makers and the private sector be improved so as to better deliver on development?
  • What are the global policy imperatives in this context, and how can international organizations contribute?
