Accelerating progress on the Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Agreement commitments requires global dialogue, deeper public-private cooperation and wider application of Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies. Building on the momentum of last year’s inaugural summit, the Forum will once again bring multiple voices to the world stage for discussions on sustainable development and to seek solutions to climate change. The Sustainable Development Impact Summit 2018 aims to shape an agenda for action and serve as a platform to harness cutting-edge scientific, technological and digital innovations.

Ricardo Meléndez-Ortiz, Chief Executive of ICTSD, is a participant at the session on Harnessing Global Value Chains for Sustainable Development.
