Content and Structure

A wide range of sustainable development strategies have emerged, led by international and national organizations as well as civil society. However, while these practices have contributed to fostering democratic governance, creating jobs, developing more resilient communities and more competitive productive practices, they often retain a status of “good examples”. This side-event calls for new concerted efforts to implement, in partnership between various sectors, transformational strategies for sustainable development. It highlights multi-stakeholder partnerships and strategies in areas such as urban planning, education, disaster risk reduction, innovation, research, etc. The event is organized by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in collaboration with the UN University (UNU), the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and UNITAR.
