I was pleased to address the Research for Development Impact Conference held at Sydney University on 1 3 June. The theme of the conference was “Partnering For Impact on Sustainable Development”. I spoke to that theme, setting out the many different kinds of partnerships required across governments, civil society, and the private sector, and across the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding silos. The 2030 Agenda and the Paris Climate Agreement require big, bold partnerships and unprecedented volumes of finance. International solidarity is needed for implementation.
