SDSN Germany starts 2023 with new colleagues
The team at the SDSN Germany Secretariat, which coordinates the network activities, was strengthened at the end of last year by researcher and network manager Tabea Waltenberg as well as team assistant Claudia Klama. The enlarged team is looking forward to working on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in the new year.
Ongoing activities in 2023 concern sustainability governance in Germany as well as the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) and the SDG Summit in New York.
As new thematic priorities, SDSN Germany addresses negative international spillover effects and the strengthening of biodiversity protection in German sustainability governance in 2023.
Negative spillover effects are undesirable economic, social, environmental and security spillover effects of industrialised countries like Germany that undermine the achievement of sustainable development goals in other countries. These effects need to get greater attention in order to advance the implementation of the 2030 Agenda worldwide, writes Dr Axel Berger, Executive Director of SDSN Germany and Deputy Director of IDOS in the current IDOS column. There he gives an outlook on 2023 and talks about Germany’s role in addressing the „polycrisis“ as well as its responsibility with regard to achieving the SDGs.
