The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) will organise a conference, Sustainable Development Goals for Asia and Europe: Delivery Options for Agenda 2030, 19-20 October 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden. The event will be supported by the Asia-Europe Environment Forum (ENVforum) consortium.
This 2-day conference will gather policy-makers, development experts, and other relevant stakeholders from Asia and Europe involved in the SDGs process. The discussions will contribute to national preparations for SDGs implementation and monitoring. It will also support multi-stakeholder, regional and international dialogue and knowledge exchange on mainstreaming SDGs into national development planning.
The conference provides a participatory platform for representatives from Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) partners to share their experiences in implementing SDGs. There will also be plenary discussions on various aspects of SDGs implementation. A roundtable session to discuss the role of academia, business, civil society, and youth in the implementation of SDGs will be a part of the event.
