Global Goals Week – Goal 17 (Partnerships For Goals)

The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. The SDGs were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030.


AIM: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development. 

SDGs4I (Identifying Interactions 4 SDG Implementation in Ireland) toolkit enables you to map, visualize and analyze how the SDG targets of most relevance in your specific context influence each other. It will take you through a learning process that supports the integration of science and systems thinking in planning and policy-making for SDG implementation. The website provides guidance on how to use the tool and lets you create your own matrix for SDG synergies analysis.
