The final reading list for the UN Sustainable Development Goals Book Club was announced on 27 October 2022. The books, which are in all six official UN languages, cover SDG 17 – partnerships for the goals.
Natural disasters caused by climate change, conflict and the COVID-19 pandemic showed us that strong partnerships are crucial to international development and that cooperation is needed to build back global societies and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
But what does cooperation look like? Imagine that there was an earthquake that damaged the buildings of a village. People from other villages and countries could come together to help rebuild the area, so that those affected would once again have a safe place to live, learn and work.
The SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals reading list sheds light on the importance of teamwork. The list includes inspiring true stories of people who made a positive difference to the world.
