Please note: This free event will be recorded and shared on public social media sites.

Join Dr Leda Stott from the Partnership Brokers Association for a dynamic discussion about strengthening our interpretation and action for SDG17.

Agenda 2030 represents a vision for radical change, across social, ecological and economic pillars, with a principle of universality - a true transformation agenda, with enhanced partnerships as a necessity.

So why do the Targets and Indicators for SDG 17 feel out of place?

Does SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals)reflect an old paradigm of international cooperation - of donor-recipient relations, of developed-developing countries? Does it give primacy to economic growth? Why does it represent a narrow conceptualisation of partnerships, and use language that is contradictory to the language of transformation throughout Agenda 2030?

How would you enhance Partnerships for the Goals?

  • Development of multi-dimensional relationships - across goals, across sectors, actors, countries
  • Inclusion of more diverse actors, where we dissect the categories 'government, business and civil society and consider the capacities and contributions of different, emerging forms of enterprise and networks
  • Promotion and adoption of collective accountability
  • Strengthened evidence for partnership policy-making
  • Safe spaces for mutual exchange, critical debate and learning about how partnering works

Read Dr Leda Stott's article: Partnerships for the Goals: beyond SDG 17 available in Spanish and English.
