UNDP Helps Firms Engage in Global Poverty Fight

The United Nations Development Program has launched a knowledge-sharing platform that will help the private sector boost its involvement in the global anti-poverty fight.

The new knowledge management platform features evidence-based case studies, publications and contacts of related actors focused on inclusive business models, or those that integrate the poor into value chains as producers, employees and consumers.

Developed by UNDP’s Growing Inclusive Markets initiative, the platform will help business leaders, policymakers, development practitioners and academia connect with successful enterprises, and help build, replicate or scale up business activities that contribute to human development.
