The development paradigm has changed significantly since the establishment of the Millennium Development Goals in 2000. The overlap between public and private interest in sustainable development is becoming increasingly clear, and the development and implementation of the Post- 2015 agenda will require an unprecedented level of partnership between industry, governments, civil society and other key stakeholders. It also requires significant institutional capacity, mobilization of resources as well as collaboration and co-investment between stakeholders. These players are pivotal in bringing to the table innovative methods and strengthened mechanisms for leveraging funding, creating decent employment, technology, innovation and research. As Member States work towards a shared vision of a Post-2015 development agenda, a further exploration of partnership opportunities among stakeholders to accelerate the achievement of the future development agenda may offer valuable insights. Governments, at all levels, should provide an enabling environment that facilitates multi-stakeholder–especially private industry and business–involvement, as we move towards the Post-2015 period.
