17 Sustainable Development Goals 17 Partnerships

28 October 2015

The United Nations Sustainable Development Summit for the adoption of Agenda 2030 and the sustainable development goals was held in New York, 25-27 September 2015.

In the lead-up to the Summit, the UN Secretariat, through its Division for Sustainable Development of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA-DSD), launched Partnerships for SDGs – an online platform to spur partnerships engagement in support of the sustainable development goals.

Born out of the Rio+20 Conference through paragraph 283 of the Future We Want outcome document, the platform has been revitalized in preparation for the Agenda 2030, with the 17 sustainable development goals at its core.

To date, the platform contains nearly 1,800 partnerships and initiatives promoting sustainable development.
