Ramesh Chaurasia-Enhancing Relationships
Taking into consideration the web of all the 16 sustainable development goals that are interlinked to each other, the 17th goal in the list had to be the one that closely keeps all the other goals together. Sustainable development goal 17 refers to the need for cross-sector and cross-country collaboration in pursuit of all the goals by the year 2030. It seeks to promote unity and friendliness in terms of international trade, shared ideologies, collective mindset, etc. for the betterment and growth of all.
Successful Partnerships at All Levels
Partnerships in all forms at the following levels-:
Regional or national level
Helps in successfully working on the following goals-:
Proposing Interlinked Solutions
When the happenings, challenges, obstructions, etc. are clearly known for all the levels, better solutions can be proposed, keeping in mind the needs, demands, and requirements adhering to different levels.
Keeping the Right Track
Being in close communication and link helps in keeping track better when it comes to keeping a record of the resources, effort, etc. that is needed to run the mechanisms and functions smoothly.
Enhancing Decision Making
When leaders at all levels come together they present solutions based on various mindsets of people at each level, taking all those opinions into consideration, the decisions that are taken are often in Favour of what stands best for everyone's’ well-being. Thus, enhancing the quality of decisions that are made.
When leaders at different levels decide to make decisions together, feelings and sentiments of unity, collectivity as well as brotherhood strengthens the foundational elements of a country and promotes better leadership.
Tracing a Path to Come Together
Partnerships are not just petty collaborations about coming together and taking decisions collectively but about making properly legalized, formal and political declarations that clarify a country’s and its’ citizens’ stance in world affairs. Several contracts, treaties, collaboration documents, doctrines, etc. have been signed and agreed to, in order to maintain peace, stability, and unity at times when making decisions get somehow confusing and require certain crucial steps to be taken. Resonating to such legal collaborations and resolutions clears the way for acting in an appropriate way taking into consideration the repercussions that are to be faced by everyone who is a part of the country.
The Significance of the 17th goal
The 17th sustainable development goal is the last but not the least on the list. Merely making a list of goals expected to be achieved within a decided time frame is not where the planning becomes successful, it’s equally important to have a separate goal that sews together all the others in a thread of integrity.
To Sum Up
The process of achieving the list of goals as decided goes around in full swing as countries and their governments, along with the apex welfare and peacebuilding organization, The United Nations, are actively working to attain success in full form. As I always mention, small steps help in making long journeys successful, therefore, being able citizens of the world, it is our duty to soar high when it comes to taking up the lead and responsibility of contributing well enough for the betterment of all.
