The YAD-Pakistan’s response towards Goal: 17: Global Partnership:
A successfully sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. These inclusive partnerships built upon principles and values, a shared vision, and shared goals that place people and the planet at the center, are needed at the global, regional, national and local level. Urgent action is needed to mobilize, redirect and unlock the transformative power of private resources to deliver on sustainable development objectives. Long-term investments, including foreign direct investment, are needed in critical sectors, especially in Pakistan. These include sustainable energy, infrastructure and transport, fundamental rights, peace, justice, ending inequities, gender equality, and economic growth, and climate action, information and communications technologies. The public sector will need to set a clear direction. Review and monitoring frameworks, regulations and incentive structures that enable such investments must be retooled to attract investments and reinforce sustainable development. National oversight mechanisms such as supreme audit institutions and oversight functions by legislatures should be strengthened.

YAD-Pakistan bridges the efforts of different development partnership with UN agencies, donors, philanthropies, services delivery organizations, media, NGOs, INGOs, CSOs, communities, legislatures, elected representatives, government, political parties, ministries, department, youth, think tanks, academics, academies, corporate sector, business communities, networks, alliances, consortiums, people with disabilities, minorities, women, men, girls, boys, lawyers, elders, notables, leaders, caretakers, gatekeepers, mentors, entrepreneurs, small scale business enterprisers & parents etc partners such as UN agencies, national and local governments, businesses, civil society, and academia.

All YAD-Pakistan projects and programmes are cooperative or joint in nature, which means stakeholders coordinate with one another and to establish integrated responses that address community-wide issues such as poor access to potable water, child nutrition, and income generation for vulnerable populations, and gender parity at the institutional level. Sustainable development must be inclusive and people-centered. Efforts to increase the effectiveness of development cooperation should be based on basic principles of community ownership, inclusive partnerships, open data, citizens based generated data, transparency and accountability and creating public private partnership to achieve SDGs in Pakistan

We need data to hold governments, companies, and people to account and meet the Global Goals and commitments they have made. Now we need to get going, keep track of how we are doing, and charge towards 2030 with the vision of what our world could be. Partnerships are at the heart of delivering the Global Goals. YAD-Pakistan philosophy and believe that the global goals can only be met if we work together. International investments, corporate sector support, developed countries support, UN support, donor agencies support, INGOs support, philanthropists support, corporate social responsibility support, Mulims Uemmah Zakat support and support is needed to ensure innovative technological development, fair trade and market access. To build a better Pakistan and world, we need to be supportive, empathetic, thirsty, enthusiastic, dynamic, conscious, well informed, inventive, passionate, and above all, cooperative.
