Global Partnering Event DIHAD 2022

| 25th February 2022

Successful development requires inclusive partnerships built upon shared values and a common vision of the future with people and the planet at the centre. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide an ideal framework for those partnerships.

Global leaders continually reiterate that we can only realise the SDGs with strong partnerships and cooperation. Hence Sustainable Development Goal 17 (SDG 17) on partnerships for the goals “to strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has delivered a massive blow to progress in the pursuit of all goals. Multilateral and global partnerships were already challenged due to scarce financial resources, trade tensions, technological obstacles and humanitarian crises. Governments have turned inwards to face domestic crises; the private sector has re-determined its priorities and civil society’s diversified preoccupations have lost some of their initial SDG-centred focus. Foreign direct investment is under severe pressure and is expected to drop considerably.

According to the United Nations Secretary-General’s Report on the progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, the numerous fiscal impacts of the pandemic are leading to debt distress and, in many countries, limiting those investments required for recovery and the SDGs.

The 2021 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), the UN’s flagship platform for follow-up and review of the 17 SDGs, concluded on July 15th, focused on the theme of “Sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic”. Throughout the HLPF, participants reviewed ways to bring the SDGs back on track.

The pandemic has put the spotlight on the crucial role of partnerships. This realisation of the importance of partnerships and global cooperation led the International Advisory Board to decide that the DIHAD 2022 event would focus on SDG 17, “Partnerships for the Goals”.
