The 2030 Agenda calls for the participation of all segments of society – irrespective of their race, gender, ethnicity, and identity – to contribute to its implementation.
The 2030 Agenda calls for establishing multi-stakeholder partnerships for mobilizing and sharing knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources, to support the achievement of SDGs in all countries.
