The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) is going to hold a presentation and discussion of this year's Flagship Report of the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) on “Policy Innovations for Transformative Change: Implementing the 2030 Agenda” in its premises in Bonn on Tuesday, 06 December 2015, 18.30h – 20.00h in co-operation with the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) and the United Nations Association of Germany / Deutsche Gesellschaft für die Vereinten Nationen (DGVN).

The report
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals are a global commitment to “transforming our world” and eradicating poverty in all its forms everywhere. The report calls for radical change in political priorities to achieve this: what is needed is to put social and ecological justice at the top of the to-do list and to make the economy work for people and planet. The strength of the report lies in the evidence it builds for this argument through a wide range of case studies which show that integrated and coherent policy making with an “eco-social” focus can create more inclusive, equitable and sustainable societies.

Drawing on numerous policy innovations from the South, the report goes beyond buzzwords and brings to the development community a definition of transformation which can be used as a benchmark for policy making towards the 2030 Agenda. Bringing together five years of UNRISD research across six areas — social policy, care policy, social and solidarity economy, eco-social policy, domestic resource mobilization, and politics and governance — the report explores what transformative change really means for societies and individuals.
