Sustainable development and the role of inclusive business in Tunisia

Middle East and North Africa
21. Jan 2019

Why do the sustainable development goals (SDGs) matter for businesses in Tunisia? How can business solutions deliver economic and social value at the same time? Companies, representatives of the private and public support organisations as well as social development experts will debate these and similar questions during a discussion meeting on 23 November in Tunis.

The event aims to encourage companies to make a commitment towards the SDGs and to include the social and environmental dimension of sustainable development in their strategies. The event will have a special focus on inclusive business models that integrate low-income communities into their activities.

During two panel discussions, the participants will not only debate good practices and innovations, but also opportunities and challenges of inclusive business in Tunisia. The dialogue event is organised by the Inclusive Business Action Network (IBAN), CONECT (the Confederation of Tunisian Citizen Enterprises) and ATUPEE (the Tunisian Entrepreneurship and Spin-Off Association).
