Javier Surasky, Research and Analysis Coordinator at Colombia's CEPEI think tank, blogs on the relevance of our new report on the SDGs in Latin America and the Caribbean for the region and how it might function as an early warning system for where urgent action is needed on the SDGs.
As global and national attention has turned to delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), what role can regions play in securing their achievement? And what early actions are needed to kick-start progress?
The first 1,000 days – or three years – of the SDGs are critical. The longer we wait, the harder it will be to deliver on our 2030 promises. This discussion brought development actors together to discuss what needs to happen now to deliver the early action to ensure that we leave no one behind.
Chris Hoy, author of the recent Development Progress report, Projecting progress: reaching the SDGs by 2030 explores some of the findings in an interview with Anissa Rachmawati from UNPAD's SDGs Center.
Elisa Moscolin, Sustainability and Social Innovation Manager, Safaricom, explores the recommendations put forward following a discussion on the role of the private sector in implementing the SDGs at the recent African regional dialogue on the first 1000 days of the SDGs.
