FEEM – the Eni Enrico Mattei Foundation and SDSN –the Sustainable Development Solutions Network Italy are publishing the Report "The 2030 Agenda from global to local" by Laura Cavalli, SDSN Manager for Italy and senior researcher in the Society and Sustainability program for FEEM. The Report will be presented in Bolzano on 17th-19th September 2018 at the XXXIX Annual Scientific Conference of A.I.S.Re - the Italian Association of Regional Sciences.
The publication is part of the commitment that FEEM and SDSN Italy carry out together for the dissemination of scientific studies, policy briefs and best practices that promote their implementation throughout the 2030 Agenda territories, launched by the UN in September 2015, and of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Two years after the approval of the SDGs many local and regional governments and numerous actors in the institutional and scientific landscape have not yet fully studied their meaning and scope. The SDGs should guide the implementation of local and regional initiatives and be consistent and integrated with national strategies.
The Report offers both a national and international overview of sustainable development as defined by the UN, adopted by the European Union and implemented by the National Development Strategy, as a theoretical framework that both helps scholars to contextualise the challenges of the 2030 Agenda in the its territorial reality and policy makers to establish priorities and sectorial policies from a multidisciplinary perspective.
