Growing nationalism and protectionist policies pose imminent threats to globalization. Addressing the challenges of climate disruption, international migration, pandemics and violent conflicts require collaboration across national borders. What role can the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) play in helping shape our common future? Who will take the lead in funding and implementing the SDGs, and how should we best track and measure progress towards reaching these goals?
