Achieving sustainable development needs strategic and inclusive partnerships between government, the private sector and civil society. . These inclusive partnerships build on shared principles, values, vision, and goals that place people and the planet at the centre, and are needed at the global, regional, national and local level.
Stronger and more urgent action is needed to mobilize and redirect trillions of dollars of resources into long-term investments in sustainable energy, infrastructure, transport, healthcare and telecommunications technologies in order to support the achievement of the other 16 SDGs. Pan-sector partnerships can achieve this, by developing frameworks, and directing policies and incentive structures that enable these investments to reinforce sustainable development.
