Spotlight on Sustainable Development 2018: Changing Course for Sustainable Development – Bold Alternatives to Business as Usual

“The world is off-track in terms of achieving sustainable development, and fundamental policy changes are necessary to unleash the transformative potential of the SDGs.”

This is the main message of this year’s third edition of the Spotlight Report on Sustainable Development, presented by a global coalition of civil society organizations and trade unions – supported by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.

The 2018 edition shines a light on existing bold alternatives to business as usual that can help to change the course towards more coherent policies for sustainable development aligned with human rights principles and standards. At the Geneva launch of the report, co-organized by UNRISD and FES, some of its key findings and recommendations will be presented and discussed from various perspectives.
