On the middle weekend of the High Level Political Forum there will be a one and a half days of focused presentations and lively interaction bringing together multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs) that contribute to the SDGs under review at this year’s UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (1, 2, 3, 5, 9 and 14), and others interested in partnerships.
MSPs are expected to be one of the significant delivery mechanisms for the SDGs. If you are involved in a partnership or plan to be then THIS is the workshop for you.
The workshop will:
1. Provide space for partnerships working on particular goals and targets to share their experiences and lessons learnt, helping to build a well-informed community of practice that can have a significant role in implementing the SDGs
2. Begin to collate a set of principles that multi-stakeholder partnerships themselves articulate as guidance for how they work
3. Inform the debate about multi-stakeholder partnerships for sustainable development at the UN, among governments and stakeholders
