Goal 17: Partnerships for Goals

With strong global partnerships and cooperation, the SDGs can only be realized. In 2017, Official Development Assistance remained steady but below target, at US$147 billion. While humanitarian crises are brought upon by conflict or natural disasters continued to demand for more financial resources and aids. To encourage growth and trade, Official Development Assistance is required by many countries.

In order to sustain growth and development, help developing countries manage their debt, as well as promoting investment for the least developed and also coordinating policies.

To enhance North-South and South-South cooperation by supporting national plans to achieve all the targets is the goals aim. All part of achieving a universal rules-based is promoting international trade, and helping developing countries and equitable trading system that is fair and open and benefits all.
