The SDSN launched seven reports prepared by its Thematic Groups on 18 September 2013. Report topics included: forests, oceans, biodiversity and ecosystems; human rights and gender equality; good governance of extractive resources; sustainable urban development; education; health; and sustainable agriculture. The reports were prepared by international panels of experts to help inform the discussions around a post-2015 development framework, and complement the SDSN’s flagship report “An Action Agenda for Sustainable Development” released in June 2013.
Reports and report summaries will be added below as they become available.
