Governance for Sustainable Development Volume 4: Challenges and Opportunities for Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Governance for Sustainable Development Volume 4: Challenges and Opportunities for Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Paperback
The 2030 Agenda represents one of the most important sets of Global Goals that the international community has committed to. It is an unprecedented effort that embodies universal aspirations for achieving a more just, equitable, peaceful and sustainable future. It is an excellent example of successful multilateralism. This ambitious and unique exercise represents a paradigm shift in policy-making for sustainable development. It gives a roadmap by which we all, the UN, governments and stakeholders can work together to address the most pressing global challenges. In this context, the rule of law, as well as effective, robust, participatory and accountable institutions are of the utmost importance to achieve the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) and their 169 targets. This is the fourth book that the Friends of Governance for Sustainable Development has produced in an effort to share widely the papers that have been presented at the workshops for member States to discuss. The Group of Friends recognises that there is an inextricable link between good governance and sustainable development and that, as the 2030 Agenda is implemented, governance challenges will need discussion and action at all levels and by all institutions. Mindful of these challenges, the governments of Germany, Morocco, Nigeria, Romania and the Republic of Korea, with the technical support of the Tellus Institute and the secretariat being provided by ARTICLE 19, have tried to create an informal space for Member States to discuss governance-related issues. This book was written and co-edited by David Banisar, Jamie Bartram, Marianne Beisheim, Steven Bernstein, Claire Blanchard, Elizabeth Dirth, Felix Dodds, Michael K. Dorsey, Jorge Fernandez-Quintela, Elizabeth Hege, Meriem El Hilali, Anne Kahl, Hyemi Kim, Verena Klinge-Dering, Gary Lawrence, Samuel Victor Makwe, Quinn McKew, Felipe Morgado, Ingeborg Niestroy, Gastón Ocampo, Cristina Popescu, Felipe Victoria, and Ruben Zondervan.
