Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR) 2019 - Call for Inputs
Background on the GSDR 2019
The GSDR, mandated by the United Nations’ Member States in the outcome document of the 2012 Rio + 20 conference, is meant to strengthen the science-policy interface and provide a strong evidence-based instrument to support policymakers in promoting poverty eradication and sustainable development. Following the adoption of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in September 2015, it has become a quadrennial publication, and it will be informing the 2019 High Level Political Forum for Sustainable Development (HLPF), the apex body for follow-up and review of the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda. For the first time, the report is being drafted by an independent group of scientists (IGS), supported by a task team of six UN-system agencies. The IGS was constituted in December 2016 and commenced working immediately. (Profiles of the 15 IGS members, and the mandate for the group, are found here:
Call for inputs
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: (1) interactions among SDGs and their targets, (2) transformation pathways towards sustainable development; (3) looking beyond the SDGs (major issues identified by research which are not explicitly taken into account in the SDGs), and (4) 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.

To make a contribution, please proceed to the section or sections of the questionnaire that you would like to complete. Please complete the “About you” fields before submitting. Contributions received will be duly acknowledged in the GSDR.

DEADLINE: 1 December 2017
