Saving the planet and leaving no-one behind: Can 'governance through goals' work in an unruly world?

Debate

Roundtable at Act Sustainable, a sustainability week for students and staff at University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology: 4-9 November 2019.

Agenda 2030 is the most ambitious framework for global and sustainable development in history. The Agenda is based on 17 goals, 169 targets and about 300 indicators, and it can be understood as 'governance through goals and numbers'. This roundtable interrogates and debates the relevance, effectiveness and implementation of such a goal-driven approach in an increasingly unruly world, dominated by uncertainty, geopolitics, populism, and contestations of multilateral cooperation.

Roundtable panellists:
Christian Azar, Professor of Energy and Environment, Chalmers University of Technology
Sofie Hellberg, Senior Lecturer in Peace and Development Research, School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg
Sverker Carlsson Jagers, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Centre for Collective Action Research (CeCAR), University of Gothenburg
