In preparation of the 2023 midterm review of the SDGs at the SDG Summit, this event highlights and critically discusses the political impact of the SDGs since 2015. The discussion is based on the key findings of the global SDG Impact Assessment, the first meta-analysis of the available scientific knowledge about the steering effects of the SDGs. The session will conclude with a high-level discussion with panelists from government, UN, civil society and research, on how the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development can move beyond political discourse. We will discuss how to galvanize solutions in all societal sectors that lead to fundamental and transformational change.
