My 18th book Stakeholder Democracy: Represented Democracy in a Time of Fear is now available from Routledge direct or slighter later from Amazon. Great for birthday, anniversary and Christmas presents. Written with my co-authors Jan-Gustav Strandenaes, Carolina Duque Chopitea, Minu Hemmati, Susanne Salz, Bernd Lakemeier, Laura Schmitz, and Jana Borkenhagen for their chapters - which are awesome!! And thanks to Helen Clark for the Foreword. While underscoring that my co-authors do not necessarily agree with the chapters written by other people. "To mobilize action globally in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will require buy-in and commitments not just from governments, but from all segments of society. This book addresses a major component of that challenge – involving stakeholders in every part of the process to deliver on the promise of the SDGs. Many of the contributors have long led efforts to build an inclusive and democratic framework for deliv
The United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development – the HLPF - is the main United Nations platform on sustainable development. Its central role is the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the global level. In support of those ambitions, Stakeholder Forum for a Sustainable Future produces – at times with partners – a series of think-pieces and knowledge-enhancing papers. Known as ‘The SDG 2030 Series,’ Stakeholder Forum, in collaboration with the Belmont Forum funded Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience (DR3) project team at the Water Institute at the University of North Carolina, has produced two new publications. Issue 3 of the SDG 2030 Series is Stakeholder Engagement Overview and Guide- by Elisabeth Butler, Re-Energize DR3. This third in the series recognizes the emergence of ‘stakeholder democracy’ as a vital approach to both policy development and multi-stakeholder pa
Negotiating the Sustainable Development Goals . T he Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of seventeen goals and 169 targets, with accompanying indicators, which were agreed by UN member states to frame their policy agendas for the fifteen-year period from 2015 to 2030. Written by three authors who have been engaged in the development of the SDGs from the beginning, this book offers an insider view of the process and a unique entry into what will be seen as one of the most significant negotiations and global policy agendas of the twenty-first century. The book reviews how the SDGs were developed, what happened in key meetings and how this transformational agenda, which took more than three years to negotiate, came together in September 2015. It dissects and analyzes the meetings, organizations and individuals that played key roles in their development. It provides fascinating insights into the subtleties and challenges of high-level negotiation processes of gov
