Recover Better Together

Bringing together public and private sector partners
to help local communities and MSMEs
recover better from the pandemic

We envision a world in which COVID-19 recovery forms the basis for the emergence of sustainable, resilient societies.


The COVID-19 Private Sector Global Facility is a joint initiative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), The United Nations Global Compact (UN Global Compact), and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). The Global Facility operates both at a global and national level and aims to co-create solutions that are tailored to tackle the phase of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the specificities of the local private sector and governments. By unlocking public-private and private-private cooperation for sustainable response to COVID-19 challenges, it is possible to recover better and build more resilient economies.
