In January 2015, the UN Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein entered into a partnership agreement with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
The resulting public-private partnership comprises, in addition to the SDC, the State Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO) as well as the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (EDA). The objective of this partnership is to revitalize UN Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein by “creating and operating a multi-stakeholder platform resulting in an effective dialogue between the private sector, civil society, the government and other organizations”.
A programme committee has been created to manage this partnership. It consists of three members of the UN Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein board as well as three members of the federal administration.
