Brookings Institution: Should not meeting the Sustainable Development Goals get you fired?
Dhananjayan Sriskandarajah, secretary general of CIVICUS, writes, “Successfully implementing the 17 SDGs requires a new way of working with more meaningful multi-stakeholder partnerships. Members of civil society need to play their rightful and multifaceted roles in sustainable development — as campaigners, as generators of data, as implementers, and as innovators. Part of their role is to convince key power-holders — from government officials to business leaders — that they are ultimately answerable to citizens for the delivery of Agenda 2030.” The blog post is adapted from the author’s chapter in the news Brookings Press book, “From Summits to Solutions: Innovations in Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals” (7/17).
