Walking the Talk: Transformative Pathways for Achieving the SDGs

REPORT: UNRISD 2016 Flagship Report "Policy Innovations for Transformative Change"

17 October 2016 (16.00-17.30) | Palais des Nations, Geneva

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals are a global commitment to “transforming our world" and eradicating poverty in all its forms everywhere. The challenge now is to put this vision into action. How can this be achieved?

Drawing on numerous policy innovations from the South, the UNRISD 2016 flagship report brings to the development community a definition of transformation which can be used as a benchmark for policy making towards the 2030 Agenda. Bringing together five years of UNRISD research across six areas— social policy, care policy, social and solidarity economy, eco-social policy, domestic resource mobilization, and politics and governance—the report explores what transformative change really means for societies and individuals.

At this event, panellists will explore how innovative policies that integrate social, environmental and economic aspects can lead to inclusive societies that leave no one behind. Moderator will be Paul Ladd, UNRISD Director
