At the local level, the SDGs embody a way for local organizations and businesses to improve the quality of life for communities in the areas of health, education, employment, gender equality, youth empowerment, preserving the environment, and capitalizing on partnerships with the public and private sectors. The SDGs also represent an excellent opportunity to develop partnerships with entities from the private sector, Governments, the United Nations, civil society, and academia.
