UNAI Quiz: SDG 17 – Partnership for the Goals

The sustainable development agenda cannot succeed without partnerships with governments, civil society, scientists, academia and the private sector. These inclusive partnerships, built upon a shared vision and shared goals and values that place people at the center, are needed at the global, regional, national and local level.

We also need strong international cooperation more than ever to ensure that countries have the means to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. It is essential that we mobilize both existing and additional resources – technological, financial, and capacity building – to help build the future we want.

Correct! In 2018, total global remittances from migrant workers to low- and middle-income countries rose by 9.6 per cent, reaching a record high of USD $529 billion. That was more than three times the amount of official development aid they received in 2018 and was significantly larger than foreign direct investment (if China is excluded). However, the benefits of remittances from international migrant workers are reduced by the high cost of transferring money, which takes up an average of 7 per cent of the total amount remitted; over USD $40 billion is spent on remittance fees annually.
