Multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSP), by combining the resources from all societal sectors – business, civil society, government, foundations, the UN – are able to deliver far greater and far more transformational impact than traditional development. As such, they are an essential implementing mechanism of the 2030 Agenda.
However, compared with the scale and urgency of the challenges, we still have far too few partnerships, and many of those that do exist are not delivering to their full potential.
The survey explores the factors that promote effective partnership working and the investments needed to create a partnership enabling environment that can systematically deliver more, and more effective, partnerships. We’d like your views on a range of topics from the professionalisation of partnering skills, to what governments can do to promote partnership, from how well organisations are optimized to collaborate, to how efficient your own partnerships are.
The survey is part of a new campaign by Partnerships2030, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), The Partnering Initiative, the 2030 Agenda Partnership Accelerator and the Global Forum for National SDG Advisory Bodies. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the need to invest in partnership enablers. The results will be published at a special partnership symposium and a call for action in September 2023 at the SDG Summit in New York.
