In answering the call of the 2030 Agenda and of Sustainable Development Goal 17 for revitalizing the global partnership for sustainable development, the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability partnered to develop the present Partnering for

Sustainable Development: Guidelines for Multi-stakeholder Partnerships to Implement the 2030 Agenda in Asia and the Pacific. The guidelines laid out in this publication provide practical guidance for ESCAP member States, policymakers and practitioners to build and sustain effective multi-stakeholder partnerships aimed at accelerating implementation of the 2030 Agenda and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This work also highlights some of the challenges and the opportunities for multi-stakeholder partnerships and identifies elements that can help ensure successful partnerships.

The interdependence of the Sustainable Development Goals and the universality and indivisibility of the 2030 Agenda generate complexities in terms of institution-building and policymaking, but they also create opportunities for innovation and provide space for new collaboration. It is hoped that these guidelines will help Governments and other stakeholders in the region foster the necessary alliances to respond to these complexities.
