Global registry of voluntary commitments & multi-stakeholder partnerships

Action Networks for SDGs are action-oriented networks that are maintained by other UN system entities or actors that focus on accelerating progress in certain sustainable development thematic areas, typically contributing to multiple interlinked SDGs.

Action networks are useful in mobilizing resources, generating momentum and creating awareness, spurring tangible results in support of the objectives of the network, scaling up existing initiatives or catalyzing new SMART commitments and actions.

Durable Action Networks are usually of multi-stakeholder nature, with an established governance structure and a relatively robust accountability framework. Some most durable Action Networks, such as the network for Small Island Developing States, are evolving together with the relevant intergovernmental processes or conferences.
