2016 ECOSOC Partnership Forum “From commitments to results: Leveraging partnerships for the 2030 Agenda”

The 2016 ECOSOC Partnership Forum, “From commitments to results: Leveraging partnerships for the 2030 Agenda” will take place at United Nations Headquarters on 31 March 2016. The Forum will consider concrete ways in which multi-stakeholder partnerships can support the ECOSOC’s overall 2016 theme of “Implementing the 2030 Agenda: Moving from commitments to results”. 

The 2016 Partnership Forum will: 

  • Provide a platform for bringing together stakeholders (private sector, philanthropy, NGOs, Academia and others) to engage in a strategic refocussing on ways that partnerships can deliver on the 2030 Agenda utilizing an integrated (nexus) approach to sustainable development; 
  • Identify key policy enablers that might be needed to accelerate cross-sectoral partnerships that address targets across multiple goals; 
  • Provide an opportunity to assess the effectiveness of multi-stakeholder partnerships with a view to promoting increased transparency and accountability; and
  • Provide an overview of best practices in review and monitoring of partnerships, including a possible role for member states in this regard.
