The Guardian - GEF Partner Zone

September 8, 2017

Guardian GEF Partner Zone
In 2015, the world embarked on a new course – setting itself 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with 169 targets, to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity. Two years later, there is a wide agreement that achieving the SDGs will require nothing less than a transformative approach

As part of The Guardian's Development 2030 campaign, we are sponsoring the “GEF Partner Zone” where leaders in the sustainable development community highlight the state of the global commons and how to address it to put the SDGs into practice. 

On September 19th 2017, the Guardian, in partnership with the GEF, held its annual leadership event in New York alongside the UN General Assembly. Entitled "Maintaining the momentum for the SDGs: how can we transform societies for good?", it built on last year’s event that looked at how successfully the global community is following up on their adoption.
