Addressing global challenges by joint knowledge production are at the core of the dialogue, research and training programme Managing Global Governance (MGG) that is implemented by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) with partners from emerging economies. With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have become a central focus of the discussions. How can the comprehensive and universal Agenda 2030 be implemented domestically and globally?

This year’s MGG alumni meeting in New Delhi, India, discussed the implications of the Agenda 2030 for India, with a special focus on the topics of ending poverty and providing access to clean and sustainable energy. The meeting was held jointly by DIE and the long-standing MGG partner Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER). The meeting brought Indian MGG alumni, representatives from partner organizations and from German institutions in Delhi together.

The 14th MGG Academy for highly qualified young professionals from rising powers starts in August 2016 at the DIE. It comprises among other elements a two-month Global Governance School (GGS), training units for leadership development as well as a two-week seminar at the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin.

MGG is implemented on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
