2019 Global Sustainable Development Report – Call for Inputs

The 2019 Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR) will be considered during the 2019 meeting of the High Level Political Forum (HLPF). The report will be prepared by an independent group of 15 scientists (IGS), supported by a task team comprising the UN Secretariat, UNESCO, UNEP, UNDP, UNCTAD, and the World Bank.

Call for Contributions

As part of its outreach efforts, the IGS is soliciting inputs from a diverse group of scientific and non-scientific communities, from developed and developing countries and regions, in the form of publications supported by short abstracts or descriptions of case studies. Currently, we are requesting contributions in four major areas:

  • interactions among SDGs and their targets,
  • transformation pathways towards sustainable development;
  • ooking beyond the SDGs (major issues identified by research which are not explicitly taken into account in the SDGs), and
  • the role of science for sustainable development.


We are interested both in peer reviewed scientific publications and other sources of knowledge which are or can be documented in written form, i.e. reports, working papers, ‘white’ papers, evaluations, etc.


The deadline for submissions has been extended to 2 February 2018.

To learn more and submit inputs, please see here.
