Description

This summer’s United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) will centre on the ambition to create a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS). However many questions remain unanswered about how these goals would work in practice. 

At this event convened by two of the UK’s leading international development organisations, the Overseas Development Institute and the Institute of Development Studies, a panel of experts will discuss the desirability and feasibility of SDGs and explore how they might fit into the wider context of what replaces the Millennium Development Goals in 2015.
