Multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs) are an important means of achieving sustainable development. In order to encourage them, several platforms around the world are mobilizing, informing and supporting various sectors around MSPs activities.

To strengthen the capabilities of these platforms, Partnerships2030 is organizing in Cologne, Germany, a two-day workshop for experts in the field of partnering for sustainable development to generate knowledge sharing.

The workshop seeks to foster mutual learning, transfer of best practices and lessons learned regarding the construction, promotion and support of platforms for the generation of multi-stakeholder Partnerships for SDGs, in order to identify potential elements for mutual cooperation between platforms.
