“Civil Society and SDGs: contributing to the 2030 Agenda”, A Conversation

We held an event together with Banco Galicia and Pacto Global with the aim of sharing good practices and tools for the delivery of the SDGs.

In representation of the private sector, Banco Galicia and Pacto Global Argentina were present, while RACI, CIPPEC, and Fundación Huellas para el Futuro acted as speakers for the third sector.

Laura Belfiore, specialist in Corporate Sustainability in Pacto Global, presented the current advances of the private sector in terms of compliance with the SDGs, and the status of the 2030 agenda. On the other hand, Belén Arce, leader of Strategic Social Investment at Banco Galicia, stated the importance of private sector actors getting involved in achieving the SDGs and becoming social investors.

Representing the contribution of Civil Society to the 2030 agenda, Luana Esquenazi, Director of Research at RACI, presented the SDG Platform (,which invites CSOs to enter their project in order to make their work around the objectives visible. So far, 1088 organizations are registered on the platform, with the most represented provinces being Buenos Aires and CABA. On the other hand, the most represented SDGs are Education, Reduced Inequalities, Partnerships for the goals, No Poverty, Good Health and Well-being, and Gender Equality.

Both Huellas para el Futuro Foundation and CIPPEC presented the progress of their organizations around the achievement of the SDGs. Verónica Carbone, head of biodiversity at the Huellas para un Futuro foundation, presented the impact that her projects have had in Argentina and Latin America. Natalia Aquino, director of CIPPEC’s Monitoring and Evaluation Program, commented on the extent to which the projects carried out by CIPPEC contribute to the achievement of the agenda.
