Negotiating the Sustainable Development Goals : A Transformational Agenda for an Insecure World
about this item
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of seventeen goals, targets and indicators agreed by UN member states to frame their policy agendas for the next fifteen years (2015 to 2030). Written by three authors who have been engaged in the development of the SDGs from the beginning, this book offers an insider view of the process and a unique entry into what will be seen as one of the most significant negotiations and global policy agendas of the twenty-first century.
The book reviews how the SDGs were developed, what happened in key meetings and how this transformational agenda which took more than four years to negotiate came together in September 2015. It dissects and analyses the meetings, organizations, and individuals that played key roles in their development.
