This resource describes the role and use of multi-stakeholder partnerships for meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on Asia and the Pacific. The document provides a strong analytic framework for how to apply concepts related to partnership formation. Specifically, the resource focuses on a non-linear approach, a Multi-stakeholder Partnership Framework, and details five phases of partnering and their relationship to global policy and advocacy.
This resource offers a conceptual framework best suited for those intending to influence policy at local, regional or national levels. The framework may be of most use by those with more advanced partnership approaches, particularly for structuring the formation of partnerships in the context of aligning outcomes to policy change.
