Poly governance models to address global challenges

Successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted in September 2015, will require unprecedented collaboration globally across societies. As the preamble to the Agenda notes, “All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan.”

Poly-governance models (PGMs) for partnership and collaboration, including actors from government, civil society, business, finance, philanthropy, knowledge institutions and international organizations, must play a key part in the process of ensuring the Agenda is effectively implemented.
