10:00 AM - 01:00 PM        (CR.4) A call for joint action beyond 2015.
‘Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ will require a new culture of “shared responsibility,” described by the UN Secretary-General as “based on agreed universal norms, global commitments, shared rules and evidence, collective action, and benchmarking for progress.” This includes new forms of solution-oriented, multi-stakeholder partnerships, which will be a key element of Agenda 2030 and efforts to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Many examples of such partnerships already exist, particularly in the social sectors in response to the MDGs. However, there is an urgent need to mobilize partnership initiatives to meet the systemic challenge of accelerating the transition to environmentally-sustainable and climate-resilient development pathways to achieving the SDGs. These must be partnerships that are based on long-term commitments, and that mobilize the group of cross-sector actors needed to advance the kind of integrated, comprehensive and scalable solutions capable of realizing system-wide change.
To help meet this challenge, ministers, leaders from governmental stakeholders, civil society and business, and heads of international organizations (referred to as “partners in action”) will meet on the margins of the UN Summit to adopt the post-2015 development agenda for an event titled “A call for joint action to achieve the SDGs: finding integrated solutions to accelerate change.”
This high-level event will provide a platform to focus international attention on the role of multi-stakeholder partnerships between governments, businesses, civil society and the United Nations that work across geographies and at multiple scales to achieve collective impact through agenda-setting, policy change, communications and on-the-ground implementation.
Three initial clusters for innovative partnership are:
Cluster 1: A life of dignity for all: building capacities for innovation, for promotion of sustainable consumption and production patterns and for green and inclusive growth; (1 hour)
Cluster 2: Breaking the silos: building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions and implementation partnerships at national and local levels for sustainable development; (1 hour)
Cluster 3: Mainstreaming biodiversity conservation and resource efficiency to restore natural, social and economic capital and secure future generations’ livelihoods. (1 hour)
Event organized by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
