As multi-stakeholder partnerships have grown in scope and prominence, international organisations (IOs) have become their increasingly visible proponents to deliver sustainable development and climate change goals. Significant resources are being expended based on the assumption that international organisations can cultivate effective partnerships. Is this a valid assumption?
