The Economist: Second Sustainability Summit for SEE and the Mediterranean
1-2 October 2018
Following the adoption of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals within the context of Agenda 2030, governments and the private sector are working on establishing ways and practices that will allow efficient and effective implementation of the Goals.
On the way to achieving sustainability by 2030, technological developments, innovative practices and materials, sustainable investment and new partnerships are being pursued, with the hope to lead humanity to this new era of development and welfare. On the other hand, conceptual challenges, weak governance structures and institutions, limited transparency and financing restrictions are only some of the shortcomings that hinder progress toward this end.
