Systems Approaches for Accelerating the Sustainability Development Goals

The SDGs address some of the most fundamental issues that are at stake for systems transformation in the context of tackling the global challenges of our time. These issues require action-oriented systemic interventions, but the SDGs are not systemic by design. As we approach the mid-term of the implementation of the United Nations Agenda 2030, we would like to pause and reflect while asking this question:

  •  “How can systems approaches help accelerate the achievement of the SDGs in the post-pandemic context for building back better?”

Therefore, the purpose of this event is to discuss the challenges and explore potential pathways for transformation to embed systems approaches into the (re)design, implementation and evaluation of the SDGs, so as to accelerate progress in the achievement of the United Nations Agenda 2030.

This event is for practitioners, policymakers, consultants, evaluators, researchers and students who are interested in embedding systems approaches into the advancement of the SDGs and Agenda 2030, in the context of the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of any sustainable development intervention.

The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and share reflections during the event, and especially during the panel session with all speakers.
