Global Dialogue on Partnership

SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals: Is it time to reframe SDG 17 so it’s fit for transformation? Conversation with Dr Leda Stott in July 2020 based on this publication.

Does SDG17 reflect an old paradigm of international cooperation? Of donor-recipient relations? Of developed-developing countries? Does it give primacy to economic growth? Why does it represent a narrow conceptualisation of partnerships, and use language that is contradictory to the language of transformation throughout Agenda 2030?

Hosted for the Partnership Brokers Association. (90 mins)

Conversation with Adam Kahane
