Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

The complexity and interconnectedness of the SDGs call for a new way of doing business, requiring all development actors to engage and share knowledge in supporting countries implement and monitor the SDGs.

Urgent action is needed to mobilize, redirect and unlock the transformative power of trillions of dollars of private resources to deliver on sustainable development objectives. Long-term investments, including foreign direct investment, are needed in critical areas, especially in developing countries. These areas include sustainable energy, infrastructure and transport, as well as information and communication technologies.

Partnerships are at the heart of FAO’s mission to help build consensus for a sustainable world free from hunger. The effectiveness of the Organization as a policymaking forum and unique centre of excellence, knowledge and technical expertise depends largely on its ability to work and develop strategic partnerships with all food and agriculture actors.
