Regional Perspectives on a Global Partnership for Sustainable Development
This background paper provides an analysis of the regional perspectives on global partnership for sustainable development. The paper is aimed at highlighting key messages and priorities identified by each of the five UN Member State regions (Asia-Pacific, OECD, Africa, Latin America and Small Islands Developing States), particularly in relation to Goal 17 (Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development) as proposed in the Outcome Document of the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals (OWG SDG). The means of implementation which are highlighted in this background paper include; general messages on collective action for global public goods; finance; technology; capacity building; trade; policy and institutional coherence; multi-stakeholder partnerships; and data, monitoring and accountability.
The key messages are drawn from review of OWG discussion documents and speeches from each of the five regions, as well as issues raised in regional consultative forums involving civil society organizations, governments and private sector.
