SDG 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

Improved policy coherence and increased multi-stakeholder partnerships are the key to the most critical element of the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: the ability of Member States to effectively raise, retain and manage their own domestic resources. UNODC will continue to apply the knowledge, skills and experience of its staff and governing bodies to help Member States to reach these goals.

The Office is well placed to convene multi stakeholder partnerships at the international level (and to assist Member States in convening them at the national level) to improve policy coherence and consequently the effectiveness of international, regional and national efforts to combat illicit financial flows.

Finally, it is to be noted that the governing bodies of UNODC, namely the Commissions on Narcotic Drugs (CND) and Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) concretely contribute towards the review of progress made towards the SDG's, which also input into the United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), and various other similar fora.
