What does “Partnerships for the Sustainable Development Goals” mean in a pandemic-shaken world?

Around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic crisis has wreaked havoc, leading to sustainable development goals as an efficient proposal to eradicate the pandemic and the aftermath for the existence as the concept of sustainability emerged closely with development in an attempt to expand the dimensions of development. Therefore, sustainable development is an essential requirement to cope with the adverse effects of the COVID‐19 pandemic crisis and the aftermath.

Sustainable development in its contemporary concept is no longer confined to one side but instead extended to include the social, governmental, economic, cultural, and environmental facets and its diverse undertakings. It is an interrelated process of sustainable engagements to partner for sustainable development goals. Suppose partners accommodate the growing preference for remote and flexible schedules. In that case, it stands to reason that many will be able to negotiate and reach a collective agreement to establish and maintain partnerships for sustainable development goals in a pandemic shaken the world.
