Together for the 2030 Agenda: Partnering for Women, Children and Adolescents to Thrive and Transform the World
On 20 September 2016, a high level event was held at the 71st Session of the UN General Assembly to highlight the importance of leadership, commitment and collaboration within and across sectors supported by people-centred partnerships to achieve the transformations envisioned in the 2030 Agenda.
Partnering as a way of working and as a means of implementation, is at the heart of this agenda.”
David Nabarro, Special Advisor to the UN Secretary-General on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Climate
Organised by Every Woman Every Child, the SUN Movement, Zero Hunger Challenge, Global Partnership for Education, Sanitation and Water For All, these multi-stakeholder partnerships are helping ensure that all sectors of society collaborate and contribute to the capacity of future generations to achieve their full potential.
An exciting product to come from the event is the “Partnerships Playbook”, a set of ten principles developed by the five partnerships which embody the spirit of working in partnership and ensuring that no one is left behind. The Playbooks principles are inspired by the SUN Movement’s own principles of engagement as members of the Movement work across multiple sectors and with different stakeholder groups to tackle the underlying causes of malnutrition.
