IISD Perspectives on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
As the Sustainable Development Goals were in the final hours of negotiation in 2015, and in the early days of implementation in 2016, IISD experts reflected on the implications for countries, the UN system, and our programs of work. These articles, first published as a series of blog postings, are the outward expression of that thought process.
Consolidated in this publication, they provide a snapshot into our own grasping of the size and complexity of the 15-year agenda that lays ahead, as well as the tangible intersection of the SDGs with our own work streams.
