Public Lecture: Partnerships for the goals: facilitating the biodiversity-climate-governance nexus? (Prof. Dr. Philipp Pattberg))
Partnerships for the goals: facilitating the biodiversity-climate-governance nexus?
Prof. Dr. Philipp Pattberg, Director of the Amsterdam Sustainability Institute, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
Multi-stakeholder partnerships represent an essential building block for the 2030 sustainable development agenda. In fact, SDG 17 calls for partnerships as the main vehicle of delivering sustainable development globally. However, little scholarly attention has been directed to the question of partnerships acting as nexus-facilitators between various SDGs. Consequently, this paper analyses multi-stakeholder partnerships and their potential to bridge the various ambitious but unconnected global goals. Thousands of partnerships and bottom-up commitments have been registered on the SDG Partnership Platform, many of which cut across SDGs and promise to integrate different issue areas. Empirically focusing on partnerships that work between SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 15 (Life on Land), this paper scrutinizes the leading “bridging practices” that partnerships implement to act as “nexus facilitators”.
