Inside Partnerships2030

The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) is a Multi-Stakeholder Partnership (MSP) that promotes collaboration among the global knowledge community to develop science-based solutions for sustainable development. This includes learning and exchange events such as the annual network managers’ workshop, at which Partnerships2030 was invited to organize a session.

The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) mobilizes universities, think tanks and national laboratories worldwide to promote action on the SDGs and the Paris Agreement and translates scientific knowledge into practical solutions. It is a global initiative operating under the auspices of the United Nations Secretary-General, and currently the world’s largest knowledge network for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The network mobilizes diverse stakeholders from the scientific community to identify and develop global and local solutions to key sustainable development challenges. This MSP consists of over 1,900 member institutions coordinated by 56 national and regional networks on six continents.

At the end of April, the annual meeting of SDSN national and regional network managers took place at the SDSN offices in Paris, Kuala Lumpur, Kigali and virtually. As part of this event, Partnerships2030 held the workshop titled “Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships (MSPs) – Towards transformative change” on April 24th. In addition to the presentation of the MAP method, concrete tools for stakeholder mapping and reflections on the efficient use of resources were presented. Discussion rounds on success stories, challenges and needs analyses also enabled participants to share their own experiences and learn from the findings of other MSPs. The aim of the workshop was to formulate next steps that can ensure even more effective MSP management. The hybrid format and breakout sessions encouraged cross-regional exchange.
SDSN fosters close collaboration between science and other stakeholder groups to globally implement the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda. It is clear that SDG17 – Partnerships for the Goals – plays a key role and is closely linked to all other SDGs.
