UNA-UK has launched a new report 'Sustainable Development Goals: Delivering Change'. The publication sets out what steps have been taken to further the UN's new global development agenda, which will run until 2030.
With a foreword from UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, this report is the fifth in a series of UNA-UK publications on the post-2015 development agenda. This report looks at how the Goals have been implemented over the first part of the 15-year agenda. It equips policy-makers, practitioners and interested observers with insights on how to fully implement the Goals, particularly for the world’s most vulnerable people.
The report, produced in collaboration with Witan Media, contains analysis and recommendations from 35 expert contributors, including:
- Achim Steiner, Administrator, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
- Richard Jolly, Honorary Professor and Research Associate, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex
- Natalia Kanem, Executive Director, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
- Sabina Alkire, Director, Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative, University of Oxford
