Summary of the UN Sustainable Development Summit: 25-27 September 2015
by Rishikesh Bhandary, Faye Leone, Leila Mead et al.
International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), 30 September 2015
‘From the speeches at the UN Sustainable Development Summit, it was clear that the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has already begun; the sense of ownership over the negotiated outcome has extended into stakeholders’ commitment to implement the 2030 Agenda. Governments reported that they have taken steps to assess how the SDGs will be implemented within their ministries. Others said they had referred to the SDGs while developing their intended natio
ally determined contributions (INDCs) to address climate change. Intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations enumerated the SDGs addressed in their mandates. And representatives from the pbility assessments.’
Best wishes, Neil
