The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a test for global cooperation. As part of the implementation of the SDGs, governments and international organisations should use "orchestration" to foster innovative approaches to cooperation.
The BRICS New Development Bank will provide valuable resources to help fill the massive gap in investment in infrastructure and sustaibable development resources in emerging and developing countries and will give those countries a greater voice in the development finance architecture.
