2018 ODSD Edition

Fourth Edition of The October Days for Sustainable Development

'Financing the SDGs' 

October 11 and 12, Luxembourg

The Agenda 2030 calls for an effective, coherent and sustainable financial system to be set up promptly. It is well acknowledged by the scientific and political community that the sustainable goals require a significant mobilization of financial resources to implement large-scale sustainable investments at a global level, and specifically in the poorer regions. This can be done only with a significant revamping of the financial system to embrace the sustainability principles of the Agenda 2030.

The 2018 edition of the October Days will contribute to addressing this challenge and will focus on SDG 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development, with a particular attention to means of implementation related to financial resources for the sustainable goals and – as specific areas of implementation – on Water infrastructure (SDG 6), Gender equality (SDG 5), and Health and well-being (SDG 3).
