Sustainable Development Goals part II

December 6, 2015

This week TWiGH goes in-depth in discussing further on the global goals or Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are part of the newly-adopted “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” signed off by 193 world leaders at the UN summit in September. SDGs replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as a roadmap for global priorities over the next 15 years. 

Our panel goes in-depth in discussing what is sustainable and how SDGs include goals for environmental, social, and economic sustainability. The panel also discusses the issues around the “sustainability” of these global goals, and the kind of impact these goals can have on nations worldwide. What are the challenges for the indicators of the SDGs? What is the resource gap to achieve these goals? Find answers to these questions and more!
