Webinar // Delivering on the Promise: How do we scale up collaboration for the SDGs?

The webinar convenes a panel of four leaders in the field, with perspectives from the UN, business, and NGOs, to discuss how better collaboration across sectors can be achieved.

On 1 January 2016, the clock started ticking on the world’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs represent a fundamental shift in approach, naming all societal sectors as key development actors, and requiring a hitherto unprecedented level of cooperation and collaboration among civil society, business, government, NGOs, foundations and others.

This is a heavy demand to place. Collaboration across sectors is challenging. To scale up and mainstream will require a targeted, systematic effort and a range of new approaches.

The webinar convenes a panel of four leaders in the field, with perspectives from the UN, business, and NGOs, to discuss the critical question: "How do we scale up collaboration for the SDGs?".

Speakers are:

  • David Nabarro, Special Advisor to the UN Secretary General on Agenda 2030
  • Jane Nelson, Director of the Harvard Kennedy School, Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative
  • Trihadi Saptoadi, Global Lead, Impact and Engagement, World Vision International
  • Darian Stibbe, Executive Director, The Partnering Initiative

The webinar marks the global launch of a major new policy paper by World Vision and The Partnering Initiative: "Delivering on the Promise: In-country multi-stakeholder platforms to catalyse collaboration and partnerships for Agenda 2030"

IAMG2019 // 20th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences

The conference will cover the usual topics in geo-mathematics, geostatistics, and geomodeling but in particular will bring to fore geomodeling issues at the intersection of food, water, and energy. The challenge of meeting the increased demand for food, water, and energy and the resultant stress on our geo-sphere is broadly accepted as one of the major scientific challenges facing mankind. The feedback processes intrinsic to this tri-partite cycle are best-studied using sophisticated...

Stockholm World Water Week (SWWW) 2019

Stockholm World Water Week 2019

In 2019, World Water Week will explore an inclusive approach. This week’s theme: “Water and society – including all” is recognizing that not everybody is impacted in the same way by too little, too much or too dirty water. Less obvious than last year, the Nexus approach will remain at the heart of the water debate, especially through the seminar topic "Addressing migration through regional integration and water security for all", that explicitly connects water, energy and food security as the...

SWWW 2019 Seminar // Addressing Migration through Regional Integration and Water Security for All

Regional economic integration can foster transboundary water management as well as energy and food security. It also attracts investments that address infrastructure deficits, accelerates participation in global and regional value chains, and stimulates economic growth. All are important entry points for sustainable development. However, environmental and social co-benefits are typically not as well quantified as economic growth.
