Putting Agenda 2030 into practice – how the landscape perspective can contribute

One year after the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement was adopted, actors in different sectors are processing how these new agendas affect their operations and how they best can contribute to their fulfilment. This workshop will facilitate an interactive dialogue about effective ways to implement the Agenda 2030, with a particular focus on Swedish actors working with forest, water, agriculture, natural resources, climate and development.

A challenge in national and global implementation processes is to develop holistic strategies which integrate the 17 SDGs. This workshop will, via national and international case studies, illustrate how the landscape perspective can contribute to an integrated implementation of SDGs in practice.

This workshop is in partnership with:


Venue : Stockholm Environment Institute
