The 2030 Agenda is a transformative plan of action of people, planet and prosperity. The agenda has agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals that cover environmental, social, and governance aspects of sustainable development. SDG 17, strengthening the means of implementation and revitalizing the global partnership for sustainable development, is an essential aspect for the Agenda. The Asia Pacific is not on track to meet any of the 17 SDG Goals by 2030; therefore, concentrated efforts to strengthen means of implementation and revitalize global partnerships that are fair, open, and “leaves no-one behind” is key to accelerating progress towards the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda in the region. Official development assistance (ODA), the private sector, and public-private partnerships must make clear and improve on the systems and channels of funding that lead to investment for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda, especially in support of the 55 developing countries based in the Asia-Pacific. In light of the unequal impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on different countries in the Asia-Pacific region, this roundtable provides an opportunity for participants to discuss recommendations for strengthening the means of implementation and revitalizing cooperation at the global, regional, and national levels to ensure and support sustainable recovery from the pandemic for all nations. The roundtable will also take into consideration best practices that can accelerate progress towards the transformative agenda outlined in the 2030 Agenda, and discuss the effectiveness and reliability of the data, monitoring and accountability framework in the region.
