SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals recognizes the need to implement and revitalize global partnerships to support sustainable development. Robust partnerships between regulators, policymakers and the private sector are necessary to achieve each of the SDGs. Regulators, who operate under a legal mandate to set and enforce rules for market compliance, must balance such priorities as market growth, transparency, competition, stability, and safety to minimize turbulence and risk, while enabling needed advancements. Policymakers must coordinate efforts to create logical and coherent frameworks for macroeconomic stability, and to mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in all countries, in particular developing countries. This SDG Brief highlights examples of synergies between SDG 17 and other goals.
