Global Sustainable Development Report 2023 and Pacific SDG engagement

In September 2020, Dr Malekpour, a senior lecturer at the Monash Sustainable Development Institute (MSDI), was selected by UN Secretary-General António Guterres to be part of the Independent Group of Scientists that will draft the UN’s 2023 Global  Sustainable Development Report. The Report is the peak scientific input to the UN on global progress on the UN’s 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.

To support this work, in 2021 MSDI partnered with the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to undertake a 2-year project that engages with stakeholders across the Pacific and Australia to capture the challenges and opportunities presented by the SDGs framework.
