Putting Agenda 2030 into practice - how the landscape perspective can contribute
23 November, 2016 - 10:00 - 15:30, Stockholm Sweden

This workshop will facilitate an interactive dialogue about effective ways to implement the Agenda 2030 in policy and practice by applying a landscape perspective. The event, held at the Stockholm Environment Institute, has a particular focus on exchange between Swedish actors working with forest, water, agriculture, natural resources, climate and development.

One year after the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement were adopted, actors in different sectors are processing how these new agendas affect their operations and how they best can contribute to their fullfilment.

A challenge in national and global implementation processes is to develop holistic strategies which integrate the 17 SDGs. This workshop willl spotlight national and international case studies to illustrate how the landscape perspective can contribute to an integrated implementation of SDGs in practice.

Contact: if you have any questions about the event or for late registration.
