The SDGs were officially launched this year to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and by evaluation of the MDG process, Brazil realized that the most challenging aspect is the implementation of each SDG, which requires the development of strategic plans oriented by those goals.
With this knowledge and recognizing the importance of being part of that agenda, GIFE joined a ‘multi-actor and multi-sector’ coalition, called the Sustainable Development Goals Strategy. As part of this group, GIFE aims to engage social investors in discussions leading to action in pursuit of the SDGs.
A group of organizations linked to private sector and social investment (including GIFE) has developed a positioning document in relation to the SDGs and has been working on concrete ways to help our members to be real partners of SDG application in Brazil.
Since the beginning of 2015 GIFE has been strongly involved in discussing and proposing ways to involve private social investment in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
