The IKI supports the dissemination of the recommendations of the Global Sustainability Report in partner countries by means of regional workshops. 

The global community is far from achieving the Agenda 2030 with its 17 sustainable development goals by 2030. This makes it all the more important to speed up the implementation of the goals and initiate extensive transformation. This is also the conclusion of the second Global Sustainability Report, which was published in September 2023 as part of the UN Summit on Sustainable Development in New York. The implementation of the Agenda 2030 requires policy mobilisation and an ambitious, research-based change at national, regional and international level. 

Regional dissemination workshops for the Global Sustainability Report

In November 2023, the International Climate Initiative (IKI) held two regional workshops on the dissemination of the Global Sustainability Report 2023 in Brasília (Brazil) and Johannesburg (South Africa). The objective of these workshops was to increase awareness of the 2023 Global Sustainability Report in the respective regions and to support experts from governments and other stakeholders in the implementation of the recommendations resulting from the report. 

In close cooperation with the UN Department of Economics and Social Affairs (UN DESA) and other national and international partner institutions such as the Brazilian National School of Public Administration (Escola Nacional de Administração Pública - ENAP), a total of around 100 people, some of them high-ranking representatives from local politics, civil society, business and science participated in the workshops, including young people and members of indigenous peoples. 

During the workshops, the participants had the opportunity to share ideas and views on key factors for the implementation of the Global Sustainability Report in their respective regions and to learn from each other in the basis of their experiences. 

In particular, the call for national action plans to speed up transformative actions was taken up and discussed. Thus, numerous points of contact were identified to speed up the implementation of the Agenda 2030 in the respective national and regional context. 

The workshops were organised by the IKI projects “Strategic Environmental Dialogues” and “Support for SDG Review and Implementation Processes” in cooperation with the project “Agenda 2030, Reducing Poverty and Inequality” funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). 

Accelerating impulses from the second Global Sustainability Report - also for German politics

The Global Sustainability Report is an important reference document for the German Government. For example, the German Sustainability Strategy of 2021 is strongly based on the recommendations of the first Global Sustainability Report. In order to discuss the recommendations of the report with the German civil society and generate national and global incentives, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development staged the conference Zeitenwende für die Agenda 2030 – Beschleunigungsimpulse aus dem zweiten Weltnachhaltigkeitsbericht (New Era for the Agenda 2030 - Accelerating impulses from the second Global Sustainability Report) in Berlin in February 2024. This event also enabled Germany to fulfil one of the recommendations from the report to strengthen partnerships between all actors of society to successfully implement the Sustainable Development Goals.
