Goal 17 is about strengthening the means of implementation and revitalising the global partnership for sustainable development. Generally, Goal 17 and its targets focus specifically on improving implementation for developing countries. This is plausible, as the means of implementation in many developing countries are scarcer than in rich countries. Still, in a way, this emphasis contradicts the universal approach of the 2030 Agenda and its ambition of enhancing international cooperation as such towards its goals.
