Leading Russian business companies pay great attention to social stability and infrastructure development, improving the quality of life in the regions. Over the past five years, much attention has also been paid to improving the quality of urban environment and infrastructure, and green initiatives.
A special role is given to partnership programmes between governments and business. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the efficiency of cooperation between business and government has again become the focus of public attention.
In Russia, development institutions, in particular the state development corporation VEB.RF, play a significant role in promoting effective cooperation between business and local governments. Tools for assessing the contribution of business companies into sustainable urban development in Russia are yet to be developed.
Topics for discussion:
- The role of Russian business companies in promoting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the cities.
- Checking the efficiency of cooperation between local governments and business amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Experience in monitoring the SDGs implementation at the regional level.
- Development of tools for assessing the contribution of business companies into sustainable urban development.
