I have been working with people from more than 50 countries, in governments, NGOs and corporations. No matter, where in the world, invigorating the human capacity to collaborate made the difference and let to tangible outcomes. The changes in front of humankind are fundamental. No single actor has all the solutions, but each actor may essentially contribute a parcel of knowledge, a puzzle piece that counts. Partnering and multi-stakeholder collaboration between business, NGOs, government, the UN and communities are expected to be essential to achieve sustainability and development goals, but they will be needed at a scale and quality that goes far beyond the current capacity for collaboration.
