A time for transformative partnerships: how multistakeholder partnerships can accelerate the UN Sustainable Development Goals

As a global community of nations and some 8 billion people, we share in the desire to achieve the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Goals that call for no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, reduced inequality, and climate action, among others. The last of the 17 goals is sustainable development through partnerships--the topic of this report. This report provides a valuable roadmap to help governments, businesses, and civil society organizations (CSOs) assess their role in multistakeholder partnerships and how these partnerships can contribute to transformative change and progress on the SDGs. It reveals four key success factors for transformative partnerships and details how partnerships with transformative ambitions can maximize their effectiveness to accelerate SDG action. This report is in collaboration with Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 (P4G), the Global Green Growth Institute, and the World Economic Forum.
