Partnerships for the global goals
NGO’s and civil society
Effective partnerships across sectors are key to accelerate action towards the SDG’s. The difficult reality of many NGO’s on the ground calls for innovative solutions to challenges too complex to tackle by one sector alone. The global goals make up a unique platform to align action and work in partnerships across sectors.
Forming new alliances
The SDG’s allow NGO’s and civil society organizations to fundamentally redefine their relationship with businesses and other actors, often moving from collaborations based on corporate donations and marketing opportunities, to transformational partnerships designed for impact.
New strategic alliances between NGO’s and businesses enhance the possibility of addressing systemic challenges like climate change, poverty or health, while at the same time strengthening impact and bringing benefits to all partners involved.
