It’s been a fast-paced year at the intersection of business and development — with the role of the private sector, social entrepreneurship and innovation becoming a growing part of the global development conversation.
Devex Impact has sought to keep you up to date with the big news, latest trends and thoughtful analysis. This year will certainly be remembered not only for the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and the climate agreement at COP21 in Paris, but perhaps also as the year that the role of the private sector and private capital got its seat at the development table. As 2015 draws to a close, here are some of the year’s top stories.
Take a look at some of the highlights and get ready for much more in the year ahead.
