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.
