Positionspapier der Think Tank Gruppe für die Globale Gesundheitsstrategie der Bundesregierung

Insittut für Globale Gesundheit, (2019)

Germany's efforts to build diplomatic and scientific bridges in global health are especially important amid rising nationalism in the US, UK, Brazil, India, and elsewhere. “With its growing economic power and increasing political influence, outside expectations are rising, but so is the skepticism,” he says, pointing to a recent position paper. He argues that Germany still needs to do much more to advance global health, by increasing support for multidisciplinary global health research and establishing more postgraduate global health programs

Rules of engagement between the UN and private actors - Towards a regulatory and institutional framework

Jens Martens and Karolin Seitz, Eds.: MSEREOR, Brot für die Welt, Global Policy Forum Europe, (2019)

Finally, it will present proposals for improve-ment of the existing rules and steps towards a new regulatory and institutional framework for interac-tion between the UN and the private sector.

Nachhaltig nur auf dem Papier? Die ambivalente Rolle der Wirtschaftbei der Umsetzung der SDGs

Karolin Seitz, Eds.: GPF, Brot für die Welt, Misereor , (2019)

Immer mehr Unternehmen setzen sich öffentlich für die Umsetzung der Agenda 2030 ein und beziehen sich in ihren Nachhaltigkeitsberichten auf die Ziele für nachhaltige Entwicklung (SDGs). Ihre Unternehmenspraxis sieht jedoch oft anders aus: Immer wieder klagen Betroffene über Menschenrechtsverletzungen und Umweltverschmutzung entlang der Lieferkette transnationaler Unternehmen. Der Umsetzungsprozess der Agenda 2030 wird von einer wachsenden Zahl von Wirtschaftsakteuren als willkommene Gelegenheit gesehen, dieser Kritik zu begegnen, den Diskurs in ihrem Sinne zu gestalten und politische Entscheidungen entsprechend zu beeinflussen.Das Briefing zeigt auf, dass das Engagement der Wirtschaft für die SDGs und der Unternehmenseinfluss auf den SDG-Diskurs mit Risiken und Nebenwirkungen verbunden sind. Sie betreffen die Botschaften, die Problemanalysen, die Lösungsvorschläge und die von führenden Wirtschaftsvertreter/innen befürworteten Governance-Modelle.

A Fatal Attraction? Business engagement with the 2030 Agenda

Karolin Seitz, Eds.: Misereor, Brot für die Welt, GPF, (2019)

Governments have dedicated a pivotal role to the private sector in the implementation and financing of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. This has pushed a turn towards the private sector, the promotion of multi-stakeholder partnerships between public and private actors. However, far too often there is a considerable gap between the social and environmental commitments companies make publicly in political fora like the UN and the actual effects of their production patterns and investment strategies on people and the environment. A new working paper, published by Brot für die Welt, Global Policy Forum and MISEREOR provides an overview of the ways and means by which the UN involves business actors in the debates around the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. It describes new initiatives and alliances of business actors around SDG implementation at the international level, and their main messages and policy proposals. With a few selected examples it contrasts the sustainability rhetoric of corporations with their business reality. And finally, the working paper draws conclusions and formulates recommendations for policymakers on how to increase the benefits of UN-business interactions in implementing the 2030 Agenda - and how to reduce associated risks and negative side effects.
