Policy Innovations for Transformative Change: Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

October 2016

Policy Innovations for Transformative Change: Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

The UNRISD 2016 Flagship Report helps unpack the complexities of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda in a unique way: by focusing on the innovations and pathways to policy change, and analysing which policies and practices will lead to social, economic and ecological justice. Drawing on numerous policy innovations from the South, the report goes beyond buzzwords and brings to the development community a definition of transformation which can be used as a benchmark for policy making toward the 2030 Agenda, intended to “leave no one behind”. Bringing together five years of UNRISD research across six areas—social policy, care policy, social and solidarity economy, eco-social policy, domestic resource mobilization, and politics and governance—the report explores what transformative change really means for societies and individuals.

Innovative Politik für transformativen Wandel: Umsetzung der Agenda 2030 für nachhaltige Entwicklung—Überblick

Innovative Politik für transformativen Wandel: Umsetzung der Agenda 2030 für nachhaltige Entwicklung—Überblick

Innovative Politik für transformativen Wandel, der UNRISD Flagship-Bericht 2016, hilft, die Komplexitäten der Agenda 2030 für nachhaltige Entwicklung in einzigartiger Weise aufzulösen, indem er sich auf die Innovationen und Wege zur Politikveränderung konzentriert und dabei analysiert, welche Politiken und Vorgehensweisen zu sozialer, ökonomischer und ökologischer Gerechtigkeit führen. Der Bericht greift zahlreiche Politikinnovationen aus dem Süden auf, geht über Schlagworte hinaus und liefert der Entwicklungsgemeinschaft eine Defi nition von Transformation, die als Maßstab für die Politikgestaltung bei der Umsetzung der Agenda 2030 verwendet werden kann, die „niemanden zurücklassen“ soll. Aufbauend auf fünf Jahren Forschung von UNRISD zu den sechs Themenbereichen Sozialpolitik, Sorgepolitik, Sozial- und Solidarökonomie, ökosoziale Politik, Mobilisierung inländischer Finanzierungsmittel sowie Politik und Governance untersucht der Bericht, was transformativer Wandel für Gesellschaften und Individuen wirklich bedeutet.
