Better lives, smaller footprints: how the sustainable development goals can help


Event material

IIED side event at Rio +20: Agenda and panellists

This event presents lessons and insights from IIED’s Ideas Fair held the previous two days. IIED’s focus on solutions which make a difference brings a grounded perspective to debate on how the Sustainable Development Goals can be designed to work most effectively in practice. Fair Ideas has demonstrated the broad range of tried and tested sustainability solutions from innovative business models, and urbanisation that improves lives, to transforming economic systems which work for people and planet. Following the Rio Summit, there will be a need to pilot SDG approaches in a few specific places. Panel presenters will bring their insights, from a range of themes and perspectives, to shaping SDGs from the ground up. How can these goals build effectively on broad and diverse contexts and have universal value?
