    Multi-stakeholder partnerships are an essential basis to accelerate social transformation for net-zero emissions and sustainable development. Sub-national actors have been playing a growing role in the global effort to address climate change. At the local level, many proactive practices have been emerging for multi-stakeholder partnerships to address social challenges and advance global agendas for climate and sustainable development.
