Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals is everyone’s business and we all have a role to play in order to make sure that no-one is left behind.
Achieving the SDGs will be as much about the development of effective co-operation and collaboration as it will be about the scale and form such co-operation takes. There is a lot of talk about partnership, but not enough practical, on-the-ground support, to make partnerships thrive, especially not at scale.
The Government of Kenya with support of the UN established in 2017 the SDG Partnership Platform in collaboration, development partners, private sector, philanthropy, academia and civil society including faith-based stakeholders.
The Platform harnesses the talent, drive, expertise, resources and capabilities of all its partners to pool the best of public and private sector for co-creating large-scale sustainable partnerships and innovations for the financing and delivery of the SDGs in Kenya.
