The 2nd Annual Sustainable Development Transition Forum (SDTF) will take place on 17-19 November 2015 in Incheon, Korea and will be hosted by the United Nations Office for Sustainable Development (UNOSD). At this event the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF)’s Asia-Europe Environment Forum (ENVforum) will organise a workshop on “International Workshop on Guidance for Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” for experts and policy-makers involved in sustainable development. The workshop will focus on challenges related to the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The ENVforum has actively cooperated with UNOSD in the SDTF since its inception. At the upcoming event in Korea, the ENVforum will organise one of the 3 workshops included in the SDTF, and discuss guidance for mainstreaming the 2030 Agenda into national development plans and tailoring SDGs to national contexts. These contexts will include guidance on financing and governance issues related to SDG implementation.
On behalf of the ENVforum, Ms Dora ALMASSY, Researcher, Central European University, and Mr Thierry SCHWARZ, Director for ASEF’s Political and Economic Department, will present the research results included in its latest publication “Who will Pay for Sustainable Development Goals? Addressing Development Challenges in ASEM Countries”.
