SUMMARY

The problems related to the process of industrialisation such as biodiversity depletion, climate change and a worsening of health and living conditions, especially but not only in developing countries, intensify. Therefore, there is an increasing need to search for integrated solutions to make development more sustainable. The United Nations has acknowledged the problem and approved the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. On 1st January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the Agenda officially came into force. These goals cover the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection.   The Encyclopedia of the UN Sustainable Development Goals comprehensively addresses the SDGs in an integrated way. The Encyclopedia encompasses 17 volumes, each one devoted to one of the 17 SDGs. This volume addresses SDG 17, namely "Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development" and contains the description of a range of terms, which allow a better understanding and foster knowledge. The approval of the SDGs by the 194 countries of the UN General Assembly implies that issues such as combating climate change; distributing resources fairly; providing security and protection; generating employment; and ensuring quality health care and education need the concerted efforts of everyone. SDG 17 seeks to dismantle structures and procedures built on inequality of access and develop strategies that ensure collaboration and sharing of resources and opportunities. The topics covered concern finance, technology, capacity-building, trade and systemic issues: Domestic resource mobilization Domestic capacity for tax and other revenue collection Long-term debt sustainability for developing countries Debt financing, debt relief, dept restructuring Global technology facilitation mechanism Technology, bank and science, technology and innovation capacity-building mechanism  Enhanced information and communications technology Universal, rules-based, open, non-discriminatory and equitable multilateral trading system under WTO Increased exports of developing countries Global macroeconomic stability Policy coordination and policy coherence Promotion of effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships
