2030 Agenda – Goal 17

Strengthen the means of implementation and relaunch the global partnership for sustainable development

Goal 17 of the 2030 Agenda program The most developed countries reaffirm their agreement to allocate 0.7 percent of their gross domestic product to public development aid. To reduce dependence on foreign support, the mobilization of local resources will have to be strengthened. International collaboration in the fields of science, technology and innovation must be strengthened and a multilateral trading system based on equity must be encouraged. Furthermore, macroeconomic stability and political coherence in favor of sustainable development must be promoted.

17.3: Mobilize additional economic resources for developing countries from multiple sources.

2. Technology
17.6: Strengthen North-South, South-South cooperation, triangular regional and international cooperation and access to scientific discoveries, technology and innovations, and improve knowledge sharing on the basis of agreed modalities through greater coordination between mechanisms that already exist, particularly at the level of the United Nations and through a global mechanism of access to technology.
17.7: Promote the growth, exchange and dissemination of environmentally friendly technologies in developing countries at favorable conditions, through facilitated and preferential agreements established by mutual agreement.

17.12: Promptly achieve access to the market free of duties and quotas on a lasting basis for least developed countries, consistent with the decisions of the World Trade Organization, ensuring that the preferential rules applicable to imports from least developed countries are simple and transparent and help facilitate access to the markets.
