Also consider how industry and governments are looking to others to use the country`s brand to improve their chances of success in global value chains. Not surprisingly, governments often turn to Italy, a country largely associated with design and fashion. The Made in Italy brand has played an important role in the international success of Italian companies. What is less obvious is that governments are also turning to Peru. Alpaca del Peru provided an impressive example of how close collaboration between government, industry and communities has boosted high-end fashion sales, bringing Andean alpaca fibers to international luxury fashion markets, while creating jobs and improving the livelihoods of local farmers. 17.15 Respect the political space and leadership of each country in defining and implementing policies for poverty eradication and sustainable development. MDG Goal 8 invests in partnerships for aid, trade and technology; SDG Goal 17 invests in knowledge-based partnerships. The SDGs require a knowledge base that goes far beyond sharing what is already known to help shape new knowledge to foster better shared understanding. Knowledge becomes a catalyst for expanding cooperation and building the necessary trust between stakeholders.
The coordination of multiple stakeholders to mobilize, process, develop and share knowledge will in turn help countries to apply this knowledge to their own experiences and policy choices to guide their own development priorities. A successful development agenda requires inclusive partnerships – at global, regional, national and local levels – based on principles and values, as well as a common vision and goals that put people and the planet at the heart. The static concept of exchanging good practices is moving towards a reciprocal process of mutual learning. Such a dynamic process creates new perspectives on what can work and how. It also encourages horizontal cooperation between sectors and actors, which is crucial to achieving the SDGs. First, the definition of partnership has evolved, as has what we expect from partnerships. Partnerships in the MDG era were essentially defined by the North providing aid, debt relief and commercial access to the South. We have asked the private sector to provide medicines and information and communication technologies to people in developing countries. The SDGs, on the other hand, call for partnerships that are forged on mutual terms and on a more equal basis.
This difference may be due in part to the shift of the global economy from developed to developing countries. The change also reflects today`s agenda. In almost no area – from poverty to climate, from peace and security to social protection – we can see our future as independent of each other. National and international political agendas are rapidly merging, as the current migration challenges dramatically demonstrate. Both the proverbial woman on the street and policymakers express the need for collective responses in this era of interdependence. The Financing for Sustainable Development Report 2020 outlines the measures to be taken to address the effects of the global recession and ongoing financial turbulence, particularly in the world`s poorest countries, based on joint research and analysis by more than 60 UN agencies and international institutions. Partnerships were at the heart of the adoption of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2000. Public, private and civil society institutions have established relationships that have led to remarkable results. This was remarkable in healthcare, where groundbreaking collaboration between governments, corporations and foundations has improved millions of lives through medicines and vaccines. 17.14 Improving policy coherence for sustainable development The United Nations in Sierra Leone has launched the Sustainable Livelihoods Initiative, which aims to discourage young people from the mining sector, which is largely responsible for environmental degradation, from more sustainable agriculture in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Remove the value of encouraging students to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in today`s knowledge-based economy.
These areas can strengthen a country`s ability to increase its productivity and competitiveness in global and regional markets. China, for example, currently has 31 million students from higher education to school, more than half of whom study these subjects. Panama turned to Uruguay, a country relatively advanced in science and innovation, to review its experience in this area. As Uruguay was further ahead in several areas, it learned valuable lessons from Panama`s success and applied them to teach its citizens the importance of science for the country`s well-being, development and market access. The news reached remote communities through internet dots, a cadre of science journalists who fed the media, science clubs, and digital colleges that made the study of science “cool.” 17.16 Strengthening the global partnership for sustainable development, complemented by multi-stakeholder partnerships that mobilize and exchange knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in all countries, in particular developing countries 17.7 Promote the development, transfer, diffusion and diffusion of environmentally sound technologies in countries in development on favourable terms; including on concessional and preferential terms, as mutually agreed While the success of the MDGs depended on money and political will, the success of the SDGs in today`s world depends more on the ability of multiple partners to act together. .
