Funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Sustainable Development Goals Program, BCCIC is partnering with the Canadian Council for International Co-operation to produce a series of policy briefs on key issues concerning 2030 Agenda implementation, in particular multi-stakeholder engagement, capacity development, partnerships, localization, policy integration and coherence, coordination, and monitoring, evaluation, and reporting. In the coming months, BCCIC will publish more policy briefs on a rolling basis.
A whole-of-society approach: Partnerships to realize the 2030 Agenda
While implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is primarily the responsibility of governments, the scale and ambition of the agenda call for contributions from stakeholders across society including parliamentarians, citizens, civil society organizations, the private sector, academia, and the media. Based on a review of good practices emerging from around the world, this policy brief offers recommendations on how the Government of Canada can support the establishment of multi-stakeholder partnerships and promote a whole-of-society approach to implementing the 2030 Agenda.
