  • Achieving the ambitious targets of the 2030 Agenda requires a revitalized and enhanced global partnership that brings together Governments, civil society, the private sector, the United Nations system and other actors and mobilizes all available resources
  • Humanitarian crises brought on by conflict or natural disasters continue to demand more financial resources and aid
  • Adapting current social and economic systems to be sustainable also needs pooling of financial resources, knowledge and expertise


The targets including those set by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 17 – Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

  • Strengthen domestic resource mobilization, including through international support to developing countries, to improve domestic capacity for tax and other revenue collection (foreign direct investments (FDI), official development assistance and south-south cooperation, remittances)
  • Assist developing countries in attaining long-term debt sustainability through coordinated policies aimed at fostering debt financing, debt relief and debt restructuring, as appropriate, and address the external debt of highly indebted poor countries to reduce debt distress
  • Encourage and promote effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships
  • By 2020, enhance capacity-building support to developing countries, including for least developed countries and small island developing States, to increase significantly the availability of high-quality, timely and reliable data


Aggregating and securing relevant levels of aid funding is a key objective for every organisation involved in development aid work. The willingness to give or allocate funds is influenced by the ability of the organisation to create trust in a targeted use of the funds without losses.

Identifying inefficiencies, optimising effectiveness, and combating corruption is therefore central both to winning the confidence of existing and potential supporters as well as to achieving their own immediate goals. The verifiability, resilience, and transparency of block chain-based systems can help agencies assess, improve, and scale their models, reassure donors, and make receiving aid easier and more dignified.

In order to streamline the delivery of development aid, to close existing loopholes, and to collect the data necessary to improve the programme, South African startup Amply is providing children with their own digital identity based on blockchain technology. These identities and the personal data that Amply collects are privately owned and controlled by the individual (with some help from their guardians). Early Childhood Development centres use a mobile app to verify children’s attendance at classes and to capture other useful information to track service performance and impact. The system improves transparency and auditability, thereby increasing trust in the funding mechanism and helping to make more funding available to more children who need it. It also saves time and money spent on administration, and provides vital data about how and where services are being delivered.
