The Sustainable Development Goals in Mexico and LA: learning from the past, preparing for the future

From 21 Apr 2016 9:30 until 22 Apr 2016 15:00

Mexico City
21 April: Mexican Senate
22 April: National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)

The overall theme of this event is “How can Mexico and Latin America effectively respond to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) framework at the national and subnational level and which gaps and institutional capacity issues need to be addressed in order to effectively respond to the Post-2015 Agenda?”

The theme will be addressed by considering four different challenges to the accomplishment of the SDGs: inequality, national-subnational agendas and capabilities, institutional capabilities and knowledge and information.

The seminar is organised by the IDS Mexican Alumni and jointly hosted by the Belisario Domínguez Institute of the Mexican Senate and the University Programme of Development Studies (PUED, in Spanish) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).

The event is being held as part of a series of IDS Alumni events to mark IDS’ 50th anniversary year. The findings from the event will be discussed in a panel at the IDS 50th Anniversary Conference ‘States, Markets and Society‘.
