The challenge of advancing and innovating towards a better livelihood while shielding the earth's natural resources has confronted governments, policy makers, environmentalists, corporates and communities for years. Though an inclusive global agenda is in place, namely the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Arabia CSR Network has for years focused on correlating these to regional initiatives. The Arab region’s premier platform for CSR and Sustainability is the Arabia CSR Forum. 

The 7th cycle of the Arabia CSR Forum is to be held under the patronage of the League of Arab States on 19th and 20th October 2016. It is a platform for an array of global and local experts and thought leaders to disseminate knowledge and ideas and discuss the latest trends and developments in CSR and sustainability. A number of high profile speakers will be a part of the 2016 Forum bringing forth their insights and perspective.  Esteemed speakers will join from United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), The League of Arab States, The Earth Institute at Columbia University and UNEP-ROWA, to name a few. It is expected to result in an important guidance to achieve the unification of Arab interests and a synergy of commitment.

The theme this year is “Accelerating the Arab Sustainable Development Agenda through Innovation and Collaboration”. The theme is bold and seeks a call to action in the region. Mrs Habiba Al Marashi, Chairperson of Arabia CSR Network, pointed out that the Forum will address four sessions. The first will focus on the current state of sustainability in the Arab world in the wake of the Millennium Development Goals, and what are the most pressing development priorities in light of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The second session will dwell on partnerships for the SDGs; enhancing Corporate Social Responsibility for policy coherence and resilient collaborations. Specifically this will discourse policy coherence with the SDGs from a global perspective; evaluate if extractive industries support the SDGs from a regional perspective and study the business case for Arab collaborations. She goes on to discuss the third session as “interdependencies and disparities between private, public and civil society collaborators. To what extent are businesses in the region equipped with knowledge and awareness of the post 2015 development agenda?” Further, bridging the gap between expectations and reality: what is the role of each key stakeholder state and non-state player in the Arab sustainability scene? Last but not least, there will be focus towards the nexus of youth, innovation and social enterprise addressed in the fourth session. Primarily, “what is the role of academia in developing the capacity of Arab youth to innovate and collaborate towards inclusive sustainable development?” and what are “new and appropriate business models and technologies” needed to do so. 

The Arabia CSR Forum 2016 is a unique opportunity open to corporates and individuals to meet great minds, talk to stalwarts and network with peers. This year it will be held at the Steigenberger Hotel in Business Bay, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. 

The Arabia CSR Network is a professional multi stakeholder organization established in the UAE in 2004. It is devoted to advancing the principles and practices of Corporate Social Responsibility in the Arab region. It facilitates networking, learning and sharing experiences and knowledge in matters of CSR. The Arabia CSR Network was the first GRI certified training partner for the Arabic speaking Middle East countries. The Arabia CSR Network promotes, encourages and recognizes responsible business practices through services and offerings including trainings, research and best practice, advisory services, third party assurance and a Pan-Arab acclaimed award initiative known as the Arabia CSR Awards. The Arabia CSR Forum, organized annually, is the Arab region’s premier knowledge sharing, dialogue and networking event. For information, please visit www.arabiacsrnetwork.com
