Navigating Sustainable Development in the 21st Century: Governance “of” and “for” the Post-2015 Development Agenda

Event start: 20130728
End date: 20130728

Event description

This workshop is the first in a series of events in the S-11 research project, entitled Project On Sustainability Transformation Beyond 2015 (POST 2015). This project is led by the Earth System Governance Scientific Steering Committee member Prof. Norichika Kanie (Tokyo Institute of Technology and UNU-IAS) and in cooperation with the chair of the Earth System Governance Project, Prof. Frank Biermann, and supported by the Ministry of Environment, Japan.

A pre-meeting was held back-to-back with the Tokyo Earth System Governance Conference on 30 January 2013. The project aims at providing inputs into the policy process on the Post 2015 Development Agenda, with a focus on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and with a particular emphasis on the governance of, and governance for, the Post 2015 Development Agenda.

The forthcoming workshop will focus on one node of the S-11 project, namely: Governance for Sustainable Development for the SDGs that centers on the UN. The workshop will bring together a group of lead authors who are working on various themes under this project. The participants will for example discuss:

  • The progress of their own part of work, as well as interlinkages and mutual learning options with work by the others;
  • The philosophical underpinnings of longer-term implications of SDGs in light of the “earth system (governance)” perspective, and
  • More policy-relevant issues for immediate output after the workshop.
