Pushing Agenda 2030: Global Sustainable Development Goals, 28 april
The United Nations launched the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development as a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. The Agenda introduced 17 indivisible goals (SDGs), to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030. To support and stimulate the implementation of these goals comprehensive action plans and multilateral partnerships must be developed.
Join speakers from KTH, SIDA, SEI and UNDESA to discuss research and actions towards the implementation of SDGs. The aim of this seminar is to explore research interlinkages among Swedish (and international) institutions and to discuss future collaborations.
