Managing Global Governance
Global society has to deal with increasingly demanding challenges. How can human security and human rights, the stability of natural resources, and sustainable prosperity be realised worldwide? At the same time, global centres of power are shifting towards the South and East and there is increasing demand by the developing countries and rising powers to have a say in international decision-making.
Despite these challenging parameters, the world has reached a significant turning point. In 2015, all member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a global social contract with far-reaching impact. A few months later, in December 2015, the Paris Declaration led to a breakthrough in international climate protection.
The implementation of these ambitious endeavours for a new world order will be impossible without the contributions of rising powers and developing countries. Managing Global Governance (MGG) aims at dealing with this challenge. The MGG programme provides an innovative platform for training, knowledge cooperation and policy dialogue of government and non-governmental actors from important rising powers and Germany / Europe. All components are aimed at the joint development and implementation of contributions to address global challenges. MGG strengthens the institutional competencies of partner organisations and creates innovative knowledge for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The objective is that MGG partners are equipped for greater levels of participation in international political processes and for achieving impacts jointly.
