Interview with Marjanneke Vijge on Utrecht University website
Marjanneke Vijge: ‘Are the SDGs succeeding at leaving no one behind?’
The UN’s ambitious Sustainable Development Goals have swept in with the promise to build integrated approaches that “leave no one behind”. But achieving 17 very different goals of supposed equal importance is no easy feat. How are countries dealing with this, and what implications does this have?
Dr. Marjanneke Vijge, assistant professor at the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development, Utrecht University tells us about her research investigating how countries are deciding which SDGs to prioritise, and what this means for the poorest and most vulnerable people.
