Using the SDG Partnership Guidebook

Tue 19 Oct 2021, 10.00 am — Wed 20 Oct 2021, 11.15 am




The aim of the SDG Partnership Guidebook is to convey the magic of how multi-stakeholder partnerships can deliver extraordinary results towards the Sustainable Development Goals and provide clear guidance on how to build the most robust, effective collaborations.

The Guidebook explores key Building Blocks of successful partnerships and the underlying processes – from initial stakeholder engagement to partnership review. It also includes a series of tools that support organisations through each step of partnership development and management.

The webinar, held in two parts, will walk participants through the different sections of the Guidebook. Participants at the webinars will benefit from a rapid plunge into multiple aspects of partnering and, we hope, be inspired and empowered to use the full SDG Partnership Guidebook to support their partnering efforts in the future.

Part 1 will focus on the who, the what and the why: the rationale for partnering, the unique resources each societal sector brings to the table, and the different forms and types of partnership that can align and combine those resources to deliver transformative results.

Part 2 will focus on the how: partnership processes, the Building Blocks of effective partnerships and supportive tools.

The webinar will also see the launch of an online version of the Guidebook, with entry points and pathways to learning around partnering based on user’s need and interest. The online version complements the Guidebook with stories & videos from partnership practitioners and special issues from the Partnership Accelerator, such as Small Island Developing States, partnership platforms and COVID-19 related partnerships.
