The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an ambitious plan to change human society by addressing pressing global challenges such as hunger, gender inequality and climate change to name only a few. But the final goal, SDG 17, is more fundamental than the others, because if we fail to achieve it, we won’t be able to achieve any of the others. SDG 17 calls for the revitalization of the global partnership for sustainable development, an explicit acknowledgement that our collective ability to achieve the goals hinges upon our willingness to forge partnerships.

Diverse Partners Work to Build a Booming Toilet Business in Ethiopia
"Excuse me. May I use your toilet?”
Despite my not being a paying customer, the restaurant owner directed me toward a doorway at the back of the building. Through the doorway, a woman shucking corn pointed me towards a tarp draped over a piece of wire, less than 20 feet away. I pulled back the ripped tarp to find the toilet—a hole in the ground swarming with flies.
