The Forum aims to among other priorities:
• Increase awareness on key business-related human rights challenges in the region and enhance capacity of various stakeholders on the UNGPs;
• Discuss the efforts by governments and businesses in implementing the UNGPs and evaluate the opportunities and challenges in promoting UNGPs in Eastern Europe and Central Asia;
• Explore how governments and businesses can collaborate on post-COVID-19 recovery, use this moment to not revert to business as usual, but to forge a new normal based upon the globally agreed standard provided by the UNGPs and the SDGs, and that is more sustainable and resilient, with responsible business practices as an essential foundation.
