Share This

SDplanNet and its operating institutions (the International Institute for Sustainable Development [IISD], Institute for Global Environmental Strategies [IGES] and Africa Technology Policy Studies Network [ATPS]), together with its regional and global collaborating partners, convened a series of regional workshops in Asia, the Pacific, Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa.

These workshops were designed to explore the future of governance and practice for mainstreaming sustainable development principles, sustainable development goals and green economy approaches at the national and subnational levels, and for scaling up implementation.
