SDG Impact Assessment
Global Governance and Sustainable Development Goals

May 25, 2021 – 16:00-17:00 (CEST)

More than sixty scholar jointly evaluated in the SDG IMPACT ASSESSMENT whether the Sustainable Development Goals had had any steering effects impact in global, national, or local governance. In March 2022 the SDG Impact Assessment will be published by Cambridge University Press.

To not keep you waiting for our findings that long, we will present the key findings of the Assessment in our GLOBALGOALS Webinar Series in the upcoming months.
On May 25, 2021 the first episode of the GLOBALGOALS Webinar Series will take place. The lead authors of this chapter, Marianne Beisheim and Steven Bernstein, will give first key insights into chapter 2 of the Assessment. Together with Frank Biermann, Pamela Chasek, Melanie van Driel, Felicitas Fritzsche, Carole-Anne Sénit and Silke Weinlich, the team has assessed the literature to evaluate whether the SDGs have led to any major changes in the systems of international agencies, programmes and other actors in the field of global SD governance, global developmental governance and global environmental governance.

These findings are discussed and set into the broader context of the professional experiences of our external discussant Javier Surasky. Javier is the coordinator of the Governance for Development Unit at Centro de Pensamiento Estratégico Internacional (Cepei) in Colombia, a Bogotá-based think tank that promotes multi-stakeholder participation in global agendas on sustainable development. Afterwards the floor will be open to questions from the audience.

The GLOBALGOALS Webinar Series and the findings of the SDG Impact Assessment are also feeding into the work of the recently established Taskforce on the SDGs of the Earth System Governance Project.
