As attention focuses on the U.N.

Such talks can also lead to public-private partnerships aimed at tackling difficult – and potentially profitable – challenges, from improving agricultural efficiency to building modern infrastructure (where current trends indicate a $15 trillion shortfall in the estimated $94 trillion needed in global infrastructure in the next 15 years).
