Geneva 2030 Ecosystem
With 38 international organizations, 432 non-governmental organizations, and 179 States with a Permanent Mission, Geneva has a unique local, yet international ecosystem. Within this ecosystem, there is a wealth of individuals with knowledge and expertise on specific issues key to implementing the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - referred to as the Geneva 2030 Ecosystem.
As part of IISD’s engagement with the SDG Lab, an innovation and thought leadership initiative for the SDGs and long-term sustainability at UN Geneva, the SDG Lab and IISD convenes a network of diverse actors within the Geneva 2030 Ecosystem to capitalize on Geneva’s expertise as a hub for SDG-implementation. The aim of this network is to surface trends and frontier issues in sustainable development for policy and action, and to mobilize new innovative partnerships for the SDGs.
With progress lacking on most of the 17 SDGs, cross sectorial collaboration remains a key ingredient to advance the SDGs. The SDG Lab and IISD partnership applies innovative approaches and promotes systems and futures thinking in convening the Geneva 2030 Ecosystem to ensure a holistic approach to sustainable development.
