PARTNERSHIP

The fourth area – Partnership – consist of SDG 17 (Partnership for the Goals).

Global partnerships are vital if the SDGs are to be reached by 2030. In this case, more is more and the larger the number of people that are willing to lend a hand, the faster it goes.

Natural disasters and conflicts are the main reasons for humanitarian crises today and even though the official development assistance from developed countries have increased, additional financial resources and aid is still in demand. But how can we meet the need for aid and financial assistance when not all countries can be equal partners, when it comes to financial contribution?

The world we live in today is interconnected thanks to technology and the internet. We can take advantage of the increasingly globalized world we live in and encourage international trade and help developing countries increase their exports. Achieving a universal rules-based and just trading system will be beneficial for all and help create strong and equal partners.
