Public-Private Partnerships Critical To Achieving SDGs

Devex: The realities of achieving effective SDG partnerships
Matthew Pace, journalist

“Seventy years ago the United Nations was born. Today the organization’s leaders aren’t just looking back, they’re looking forward, and as they do, they are charting a new path for global development. They see more and more partnerships ahead. … For this round of global goal setting, the business community’s role has received much greater attention. … Members of a U.N. working group still have to figure out how to measure what works, and what doesn’t. They are examining 169 proposed targets to mark progress on the SDGs. That exercise will continue through next March. But even now, people inside the U.N., and outside of it, maintain partnerships will be the key to getting things done” (7/27).
