Side Event on the 15th of July on managing interactions across SDGs: a tool for policymakers

Date and time:  Friday 15 July 2016;  
Venue: Conference Room D, UN Conference Building

While the scientific community has emphasized the need for a systems approach to sustainable development, scientists, like policy-makers, are now facing the challenge of turning the goals into reality. Recognizing the integrated, indivisible nature of the Agenda 2030, the International Council for Science, with its research partners, is exploring an integrated and strategic approach to the implementation of the SDGs, aiming to create a common conceptual framework to help policymakers and investors identify and manage synergies and tradeoffs across goals and targets. 

The side event will present the framework, which is a seven point scale, and explore with policy makers from both developed and developing countries the challenges and knowledge gaps they face in the implementation of the SDGs.
