If promoting sustainable development requires an integrated approach that marshals the resources of all sectors, there is one critical mechanism without which the SDGs cannot be met: partnership.

Meeting the SDGs: A global movement gains momentum is an Economist Intelligence Unit report that explores progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In 2015 more than 190 countries agreed to prioritise these 17 UN-backed goals as national targets. These objectives include improving education, economic growth, gender equality, infrastructure, health and industrial innovation.

The report examines how global human development efforts may engage the private sector; uphold standards of transparency, accountability and evaluation; an encourage the use of integrated approaches to today’s major social and environmental challenges.
