UN: Support to the UN SDSN on the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda

CCSI provides support to the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN SDSN) Thematic Network 10 on Good Governance of Extractive and Land Resources, which CCSI Director Lisa Sachs also co-chairs. CCSI’s support covers both extractive and land-related issues. This work has included technical support on reports and documents during the development of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as in the development of potential indicators to measure progress toward the SDGs. In addition, the Center and the Thematic Network have worked together on a number of projects, including:

– a briefing note on why good governance of land and tenure security must be part of the Sustainable Development Goal framework,

– a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), together with the Natural Resource Governance Institute and the World Bank, on “Resources for Sustainable Development: the fundamentals of oil, gas and mining governance,” which launched in Spring 2016, and

– a mapping of the SDGs for the mining sector, together with the World Economic Forum and UNDP.
