Russian assistance for international development focuses on multiple areas: healthcare, combating infectious and non-communicable diseases, food security, public administration, finance, social protection, education and access to basic services.
We need to institutionalize the Russian Federation’s participation and build a mechanism to provide direct support as well as coordinate preparatory work, resolve legal issues, and coordinate with international organizations. We need to create a platform in the form of a fund or non-profit that would be capable of coordinating actions between stakeholders to ensure the more effective use of funds and human resources.
Spending time more efficiently on studying the initial situation and preliminary response preparations to emergency situations will result in more lives being saved and resources being conserved.
Modern risks create threats not only for people who defend the government, but for business too. Thus, it’s clear that a public-private partnership in particular must be able to cope with risks at the local and global level.
The role of the private sector is rapidly changing. We used to look at the private sector as a source of funding, but it’s much more than that. The private sector became the main partner and stakeholder in development projects around the world. It has knowledge, expertise and technology. Business emergency response in recovery and development can create a viable nexus if you want to achieve sustainable human development goals and lift everyone from poverty where people can look into the future with dignity, with jobs and with health.
The world is constantly changing. New challenges are appearing, and in addition to its own efficiency, business must focus on its greatest value – people.
