Walking the Talk: Transformative Pathways for Achieving the SDGs— UNRISD Flagship Report Launch

On Monday, 17 October UNRISD will launch its 2016 Flagship Report, Policy Innovations for Transformative Change.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals are a global commitment to “transforming our world” and eradicating poverty in all its forms everywhere. The challenge now is to put this vision into action. How can this be achieved?
