UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)[edit]

  • Liam's Legacy Symposium at Georgia Tech: Creating, Implementing, & Measuring the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals
    • The 7th annual Liam's Legacy Symposium features Jessica Espey, Senior Advisor to the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). In 2015, after a 4-year negotiation process, 193 United Nations member countries agreed upon a new global framework for development that included 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The “SDGs” span nearly every developmental issue facing the world, from climate change to poverty to sustainable production and consumption. They are as relevant in the United States as they are in places like Somalia. The ambition of this universal agenda is to shepherd the whole world towards a more sustainable, equitable and prosperous future, where no one is left behind. Jessica Espey, who was a lead negotiator in the SDG process, reflects on the negotiation process and shares insights into SDG implementation in diverse locations around the world.
