The scale, scope and complexity of the economic, social and environmental transformation for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will require an enhanced collaboration among all sectors, inclusive of governments, private sector and civil society. On Wednesday, 21 February 2018, as an integral part of the SDG 7 Conference, the SDG 7 Partnership Exchange Day will be devoted to energy related events by member States, UN system and other stakeholders.
