Workshop on “Making Multi-stakeholder Partnerships Work for the Sustainable Development Goals”

The workshop brings together multi-stakeholder partnerships that contribute to the SDGs under review at this year’s UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development and others interested in partnerships.

A Workshop on the Margins of the UN High Level Political Forum in New York, 15 -16 July, 2017

MSP Institute and Tellus Institute are organising one and a half days of focused presentations and lively interaction on multi-stakeholder partnerships that contribute to the SDGs under review at this year’s UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (1, 2, 3, 5, 9 and 14).

The workshop will:

 1. Provide space for partnerships working on particular goals and targets to share their experiences and lessons learnt, helping to build a well-informed community of practice that can have a significant role in implementing the SDGs.

 2. Begin to collate a set of principles that multi-stakeholder partnerships themselves articulate as guidance for how they work.

 3. Inform the debate about multi-stakeholder partnerships for sustainable development at the UN, among governments and stakeholders.

Since PaRD works as a multi-stakeholder partnership that contributes to the SDGs, exchange and lessons learned on cooperation of multiple stakeholders is of particular interest for PaRD members and partners.
