SDG 12: Content, Impact and Implementation

Workshop 4. March 2021, 9.00-12.00 (Sao Paulo GMT-3)

Location: In your living or work room (virtual access)

The Sustainable Development Goals have been laid down in 2015 and should be achieved by 2030 (2030 Agenda, 17 SDGs). The year 2021 lends itself for a midterm-review. In the workshop, we will discuss in which ways the SDG 12 has been implemented in different countries. As a starting indicator of the national policies for achieving SDG 12, we will look into the National Development Strategy (NDS) of different countries and the different goals laid down there. Each participant should provide a short summary of the NDS for her or his country of interest and present it during the workshop (15 minutes). 

Impact entails the real-world changes in consumption and production within a country while implementation “refers to measures that states take to make international accords effective in their domestic law” (Jacobsen/Brown Weiss, 2000, Strengthening Compliance with International Environmental Accords, 4); in short, changes within national law. In addition and beforehand, each participant should provide a short proposal for an aspect that lends itself for a deeper analysis of implementation measures or impact studies within the NDS presented (300 Words) and send it, together with a short Bio, to You will receive an email confirming your registration and acceptance of presentation, besides information to access the virtual room.

The aim of the workshop is to find a common research framework to assess the impacts and the implementation of SDG 12 so far in different countries. The joint research should lead to a special issue. The first workshop is just a get together and should lay down the framework of analysis. In the second workshop, we will discuss the individual papers for the special issue.
