The platform initially developed in response to Rio+20 has been improved to better respond to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in order to inform all stakeholders on initiatives carried out by multi-stakeholder partnerships in support of the SDGs, and for linking progress of those initiatives to various follow-up mechanisms of the 2030 Agenda, in particular to the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.

Multi-stakeholders Partnerships (MSPs) Partnerships are defined as voluntary and collaborative relationships between various parties, both state and non-state, in which all participants agree to work together to achieve a common purpose or undertake a specific task, and to share risks and responsibilities, resources and benefits. Multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs) can range from loose forum-like structures allowing for active debate and the exchange of knowledge and experience, to more formalised structures based on the creation of a legal entity with appropriate governance structures to ensure transparency and accountability. The core theme of MSPs is joint value creation by all the participating members.
