Efforts are underway to ensure private businesses are leveraged for the achievement of the new global development goals, or SDGs.

World leaders agreed the 17 goals at the UN in September.

The Sustainable Development Goals Fund is working to foster public-private partnerships, saying they will be critical for reaching the objectives laid out in the new worldwide development agenda.

The Fund was created by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) in 2014 and has already been working in a number of areas related to economic growth and poverty eradication.

Veronica Reeves spoke with the Director of the Fund, Paloma Duran. She started by asking her how the Fund's efforts have been galvanized by the adoption of the SDGs.
