Background

The ECOSOC Partnership Forum is organized annually to discuss the role of partnerships in driving sustainable development. As outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, partnerships are essential for achieving all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and mobilizing the related commitment, efforts, finance, technology and data.

With only ten years left to achieve the SDGs, the 2021 ECOSOC Partnership Forum will provide policy space for Member States, non-state stakeholders and the UN development system to focus on key cross-cutting and interlinked issues that are central to accelerating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and for discussing ways to mobilize multi-stakeholder partnerships to galvanize synergistic actions. The Forum also aims to showcase a number of successful partnerships that are accelerating the achievement of the SDGs.
