Limak Supported SDG Impact Accelerator Presented at the World’s First Global Refugee Forum in Geneva

Innovative solutions to improve the lives of refugees in Turkey have been presented on 16 December 2019 at a high-level event organised during world’s first Global Refugee Forum in Geneva.

SDG Impact Accelerator launched in July 2019 in Turkey, entrepreneurs developed solutions for refugees to have access to livelihood opportunities through Digital ID systems and portable non-sewage sanitation through reinvented toilets.

SDG Impact Accelerator presents an innovative multi-stakeholder platform that harnesses the potential of collaboration across sectors and disciplines and leverages the power of entrepreneurship, innovation and technology to address the challenges that refugees face every day.

Representing the Turkish private sector at the high-level event organized within the margins of Glonal Refugee Forum, Ebru Özdemir, Chair at Limak Investments and Limak Foundation of Turkey said: “The critical SDG agenda cannot be realized without meaningful engagement from the private sector. ‘Business as usual’ will not simply achieve the SDGs. We need to go beyond this approach for development. Engagement of the private sector can open brand new horizons and structure for solutions that are innovative, resilience-bases and forward-looking”.
