The World Bank Institute is hosting a Forum on “Business, NGO’s and Development: Strategic Engagement to Meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)”, which will take place April 10-11, 2006. As stated by the World Bank, important changes in the strategic landscapes of both non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and businesses suggest that their core objectives – profits for the private sector; local development for NGOs – can no longer be achieved unilaterally.
