Prof. Dr. Melissa Siegel will be the presenter in the Expert Group Meeting in preparation of the Sustainable Development Outlook 2019
Next 20-21 February, Prof. Dr. Melissa Siegel will serve as the Presenter in Sesion 4 entitled “Multilateralism, SDG implementation and policy responses: implications of increasing migration pressures and rising nationalism, and likely scenarios”, in the Expert Group Meeting (EGM) in preparation of the Sustainable Development Outlook 2019.
The Sustainable Development Outlook (SDO) 2019, will address climate change, natural disasters, conflicts and population displacement. The SDO 2019 will aim to promote greater understanding of the shifting landscape and key challenges confronting sustainable development challenges and facilitate inter-governmental deliberations on the Sustainable Development Goals at the High Level Political Forums (HLPF) in 2019.
The EGM will consider the trends in, and interlinkages among, climate change, natural disasters, conflicts and population displacement. It will discuss not only the direct implications of these processes for sustainable development outcomes, but also explain how they indirectly affect implementation of sustainable development through undermining commitment to multilateralism. The meeting provides a platform for an exchange of views among experts, members of the SDO drafting Team, and colleagues from other UN organizations.
