Abstract: Achieving Sustainable development requires strong commitment and cooperation between countries. This is why the Sustainable Development Goals’ Goal 17 aims to “Revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development”. This may sound obvious, but it does bear asking: “Why exactly is cooperation necessary?” There are at least three obvious reasons. The first is that much environmental pollution knows no borders. Its solution requires cooperative action. The second is that economies are also not confined to national borders through trade, mobility and exchange. The third, is that for many of us it is of dubious morality to limit our sphere of concern to national boundaries.
