Event description

Description

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through Improved Governance

Most indices of global development – such as the SDGs – measure the symptoms of chronic ineffective governance. The international development community has increasingly recognized this and shifted emphasis from service delivery and capacity-substitution to more nuanced approaches that strengthen local systems and navigate local incentive structures.

In this installment of the Innovations in Governance Series we aim to identify new approaches and examples of governance interventions with powerful implications for achieving the SDGs and other development outcomes. Speakers will discuss examples from health, education, food security, and environment programs where governance approaches produced tangible results and identify common methodologies, challenges and opportunities for integrating governance into sectoral programs.

Please join us to hear practitioners discuss these initiatives’ promise and implementation lessons from the field. Light lunch will be served.
