Note

This is my Doctoral assignment from International Coorperation for Sustainable Development Goals Short Course which has never been published anywhere and I, as the author and copyright holder, license this assignment customized CC-BY-SA where anyone can share, copy, republish, and sell on condition to state my name as the author and notify that the original and open version available here. It is unfortunate that I have to go back on my words due to private circumstances and the Covid-19 Pandemic. Another factor is myself where I changed. Back then, I was into fully academic and research, and met a friend who did postdoc in many countries which was my inspiration back then. I changed ever since I was exposed to finance, entrepreneurship, investment, and cryptocurrency.

In other words, cooperation is the process of jointly working towards the same end with another person agreeably and willingly. International cooperation represents various nations in the pursuit of a common goal or interest. The goal of international cooperation is usually for sustainable development goals (SDG). Sustainable development is a development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The featured image shows seventeen points of SDG and image above shows five Ps which are influenced and related to one another. All this factors have to be considered. [2]

2. Plans for Contribution

Although there are many points shown on above images, but there are only a few that I planned to directly contribute which hopefully will also have a positive impact on other points. There are five points which I can directly contribute:
