UNA-UK has launched a new report 'Sustainable Development Goals: From promise to practice'. The publication sets out how to take forward the UN's new global development agenda, which began in January 2016.
With a foreword from UN Secretary-General António Guterres, this report is the fourth in a series of UNA-UK publications on the post-2015 development agenda. This report looks at how the the Goals are being implemented in the course of the vital first 1,000 days of the 15-year agenda. It equips policy-makers, practitioners and interested observers with insights on how to make the Goals a reality, particularly for the world’s most vulnerable people.
The report, produced in collaboration with Witan Media, contains analysis and recommendations from 50 expert contributors, including:
- Irina Bokova, Director-General, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)
- Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
- Gabriele Köhler, Philip Mader, Richard Jolly and Robin Luckham, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex
- Lise Kingo, CEO and Executive Director, UN Global Compact
