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?

The program is organized by the Oslo Academy of Global Governance at the Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM), University of Oslo.
