Guide for Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships

The Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) presents this tool in order to boost the promotion, support and implementation of multi-stakeholder partnerships, within the new development landscape established by the 2030 Agenda. Alianza Shire is one of the four cases analysed for this guide.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations provides a new global framework for international development cooperation in which multi-stakeholder partnerships are essential to achieve its seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In this context, the guide for Multi-stakeholder Partnerships was developed in collaboration with the Centre for Innovation in Technology for Human Development of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (itdUPM), in order to foster and coordinate partnerships between the different actors involved in international cooperation, the public and private sectors and civil society.

The guide analyses four case studies, including Alianza Shire, in order to show a variety of examples of partnerships and explore some of the new trends in the field of multi-stakeholder collaborations. In addition, the role of the different international cooperation organisations in promoting and supporting these partnerships is analysed. With this initiative, the Agency provides an indispensable working tool that will serve to guide and assist us in undertaking and managing a multi-stakeholder partnership, in accordance with the application of the Action Plan for the implementation of the Government of Spain’s 2030 Agenda.
