    development agenda Rmulo Paes de Sousa

    Rio+ Centre


  • Rio+ activities

    Produce policy analysis and evidence on tackling the barriers to achieving sustainable development for the bottom half (poor and marginalised groups);

    Produce practical tools, instruments and methodologies that governments can use to advance integrated, equitable and sustainable development planning, policy and practice; and

    Convene global dialogue that spurs action on behalf of governments, civil society, think tanks, academia, and multi-lateral organizations among others.

  • Programmatic Areas of Work

    Social Protection for Sustainable Development


    Sustainable Development Goals and Post 2015

    Sustainable Cities and Communities

    Financing for Sustainable Development

    Inequality, Governance and Social Justice

    Date Activity Venue

    Aug 11th Sep 7th Online consultation indicators online

    Sep 25 - 27 UN Summit NYC

    Sep 29 30 IAEG-SDGs LA meeting Santiago

    Oct 26 - 28 IAEG-SDGs 2nd meeting Bangkok

    March 9 11 47th session Statistical Commission


  • Context

    Significant convergence among the countries about the products of the incoming Summit and UN Assembly

    Pending issues on the means of implementation (financing and governance)

    The current state of the art is favourable to countries like Brazil, propelling them to relevant positions in the implementation process of the SDGs

  • The Paradox

    A highly democratic and inclusive process is producing a challenging complex monitoring model

    Countries very comfortable with the political results are not necessarily equipped for the technical implementation

    However, that is not true for all countries in this regard

  • SDGs by the numbers

    17 goals

    169 targets

    1063 indicators proposals

    209 suggested indicators

    101 Tier 1 indicators

  • Davis, Matthews, Szabo and Fogstad (2015) Measuring the SDGs: a two-track solution. Lancet, 386 (9990)

  • LEAD, 2015. Translating Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the National Level



  • Risks on SDGs implementation

    Lack of policy coherence between SDGs and national development pathway

    SDGs not embedded in a robust institutional framework

    Lack of adequate resource mobilization

    Lack of interest by parliament in general and sub-national governments. Lack of political will and ownership

  • Risks on SDGs implementation

    Lack of coordination mechanisms (national and sub-national)

    Poor engagement of civil society and media

    Report inconsistencies on environmental dimension. Lack of consistent data

    Lack of coordination among donors. Absence of accountability mechanisms.

  • Lessons from Brazil

    Strong national intergovernmental coordination

    Less participation of the sub-national levels

    Engagement of the civil society

    Need to go beyond So Paulo, Rio and Brasilia.

  • Lessons from Brazil

    Leadership of the statistical bureau on the technical debate

    Academia and sub-national institutions needs stronger mobilization

    Engagement of the areas, such as: sustainable development, environment, health (Fiocruz)

    Some relevant areas lack of experience and resources for SDG implementation

  • Lessons from Brazil

    Effective MDGs dissemination over 200 municipalities

    Other municipalities demand stronger engagement

    Administrative, demographic and economic data aggregated at municipal level (Ex: Human Development Atlas)

    Considerable challenge for environmental data

  • Getting back to the initial question, the answer is yes.

    The 2030 agenda is a decisive step. But, we will need more. And that

    will demand patience, determination and a lot of creativity

    to forge the sustainable future.
