    What: As the world enters the third decade of the 21st century, concurrent global crises of pandemic disease, economic contraction, systemic inequities, and severe environmental degradation are evolving amid a rebirth of nationalism, rapid technological change, hyper-fragmented public debates, and breakdowns in international cooperation. Against that backdrop, the sustainable development goals, as established by all countries at the United Nations in 2015, form a crucial “North Star” for the community of nations in charting a new course toward economic, social, and environmental progress by 2030.

    In response, the Global Economy and Development program at Brookings is committed to supporting international, U.S., and networked societal leadership for sustainable development and will launch a dedicated Center for Sustainable Development (CSD) with an event on Wednesday, October 21. This will include an address from Brookings President John Allen and keynote remarks from U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, followed by a panel with her and other prominent policy leaders, moderated by CSD Director and Senior Fellow John McArthur.
