New reports from the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN)

Dear friends,

As governments convene in New York for next week’s third session of the Inter-Governmental Negotiation on the Post-2015 Agenda, I am pleased to share with you three recent outputs from the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).
Key Elements of a Successful Addis Ababa Accord on Financing for Sustainable Development was prepared by the Leadership Council of the SDSN and includes practical suggestions for the Financing for Development (FfD) discussions, including how to align financing with sustainable development, how to establish robust global partnerships and to mobilize new development finance for the SDGs.

Key Elements for Success on Climate Change Mitigation at COP21 in Paris was also prepared by the Leadership Council of the SDSN. This brief working paper outlines how to operationalize the internationally agreed target to limit the rise in global temperatures to no more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels.

Indicators and a Monitoring Framework for the SDGs, is the result of over 16 months of intensive consultation with leading academics, civil society, the private sector and country statisticians, to identify a limited but integrated set of robust indicators, to comprehensively track the 17 SDGs and 169 targets. The report was provided as input to the Expert Group Meeting on SDG Indicators, held just before the UN Statistical Commission, and we are pleased to see many of the key principles reflected in the Technical Report of the Bureau of the Statistical Commission. The findings from the public consultation on an earlier draft are available on our website.
