Funding brief: With the SDG Partnership facility (SDGP), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in collaboration with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) as the executor, aims to help achieve the following sustainable development goals in developing countries:
● SDG 2 (ending hunger)
● SDG 8 (decent jobs and economic growth)
● SDG 17 (partnerships for the goals)
These are key goals which cannot be solved by one party. That is why the SDGP works with partnerships between government, businesses, NGOs and/or knowledge centres. Combining the expertise of these parties is essential for finding innovative solutions to complex challenges. Partnerships are capable of aligning interests and bridging differences so that major steps can be taken towards attaining the SDGs.
