In September, world leaders will meet to agree on a set of new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will aim to establish measurable targets for ending poverty, achieving shared prosperity, and protecting the planet by 2030. The effort will require partnerships among governments, development agencies, civil society, philanthropists, and businesses. For these partnerships to be effective, it will be essential that they are driven by the priorities of the countries where the development efforts are directed. The diverse structures and approaches to partnership must simultaneously respect individual national priorities while also effectively implementing the SDGs across the globe.

On September 9, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) joined the Brookings Institution to launch its 2015 Development Cooperation Report. The report focuses on how to implement the SDGs through effective partnerships and the role of partnerships in providing the necessary balance of sovereignty and subsidiarity, of inclusiveness and differentiation, and of coherence and accountability.
