Briefing on the Partnership Data for SDGs initiative
3 Apr 2018
Conference Room 11, UNHQ, New York
The Partnership Data for SDGs (PD4SDGs) – a collaboration between Division for Sustainable Development of UN-DESA, the UN Office for Partnerships and the UN Global Compact - aims at improving the transparency, accountability and the sharing of experiences of the work being carried out by multi-stakeholder partnerships and voluntary commitments in their support to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The initiative seeks to bring greater transparency, coherence, impact, and comparability of the work carried out by multi-stakeholder partnerships and voluntary commitments by promoting a system-wide use of the established SMART criteria – a partnership/commitment that is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Resource-based, with clear and Time-based deliverables.

There is a growing trend to collect voluntary commitments and partnerships in support of UN conferences and processes dealing with sustainable development, sometimes with varying degree of level of details, which could lead to difficulty in reviewing impact, track progress and conduct in-depth and global comparability analyses on announced commitments and partnerships. It is against this background the Partnership Data for SDGs initiative has been developed.

The briefing aims to inform member States and other stakeholders about the objectives of the Partnership Data for SDGs initiative, followed by and open dialogue with questions and answers.
