The Department of Policy and Administration invites you to the lecture: Realizing the Potential of Local Value to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by Dr. Mahmoud Moheildin, Senior Vice President, World Bank group. 


The sustainable development goals (SDGs) were the 1st of their kind having been agreed by 193 United Nations member states and applying both developed and developing countries alike. They span a range of global trends and issues including climate, human capital, business, jobs, education, and partnerships, among others. With slightly over ten years to go to achieve them, current trajectories show that countries around the globe are not on track-for instance, the current pace of SGD 1 will leave around a quarter of Sub-Saharan Africa in poverty in 2030. All this in the midst of estimates of low growth and investment as well as challenges in public debt management. There is a definitive need to accelerate actions on the ambitious SDGs, and realizing value at the local level is one solution. Can capturing local value allow impact to be felt at the global level? Does this provide the impetus that is needed to speed up the pace of achieving the SDGs? What could be the role of policy, institutions and communities?
