SDG 17 : PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS
GOAL: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
A concerted and united effort fueled by passion, innovation and empathy is necessary to build a world that is better for all. Within that context, international cooperation is vital in fostering innovative technologies, market access and fair trade, as well as enhancing the capacity to address economic and environmental crises, particularly for developing countries.
Unfortunately, the covid-19 pandemic has further exacerbated existing challenges related to global partnerships, including : scarcity of financial resources, technological obstacles and trade tensions.
The fiscal impact of the pandemic has resulted in debt distress in various regions, significantly limiting their fiscal capacity for recovery investments, including accessing vaccines.
