This report summarises the Human Security Business Partnership (HSBP) Framework, an innovative model to assist companies and investors to partner with governments, the UN system, and local stakeholders to achieve the ambitions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The model was developed by LSE IDEAS and research partners, ESSEC-Irene, Business and Human Rights, Peace Startup, Build Up and International Alert, with the United Nations Human Security Unit. The report explains why the HSBP Framework is needed at this time, recognizing that each context is different and requires more than a single approach or a one-size-fits-all framework. It offers guidance on how diverse actors can work together to find and expand common ground to tackle their respective risks and achieve their various interests, alongside examples of where the Framework has proved relevant to companies and NGOs in fragile situations. It seeks to fill the practical gaps that exist in finding integrated solutions to complex challenges and in connecting the objectives and interests of global and national business with everyday hopes, fears and expectations of people.
