What is the Annual Ministerial Review (AMR) Innovation Fair ?

It is now widely recognized that civil society and the private sector have an important role to play in implementing the internationally agreed development goals, including the MDGs. Yet their potential still needs to be unlocked fully.

The “AMR innovation fair”, which will be held as a parallel event to the AMR session, will serve as a new vehicle for better tapping the potential of civil society and in particular of the private sector.

At the “AMR innovation fair” business sector representatives and civil society could discuss what has worked and what has not worked and identify examples of good practices and innovative approaches which could then be recommended for scaling-up.

The AMR Innovation Fair is committed to:

  • Fully unlock the potential of the private sector and civil society

  • Provide an opportunity for private sector and civil society representatives to share their examples of good practices

  • Make information on innovative policies and approaches widely available

  • Provide updates on the progress of global partnerships towards achieving the MDGs
