The Research Agenda for Sustainable Development

A Sustainable Development Forum with Jeffrey Sachs

The Institute of International Economic Policy, GW Institute for Sustainability and Planet Forward present

Dr. Jeffrey Sachs
Director, Earth Institute, Columbia University
Special Advisor to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the Millennium Development Goals
Director, United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network 

Sustainable Development is emerging as the defining challenge of our generation, and it will critically require a new kind of interaction between policy and research. The Sustainable Development Forum is a series of talks by leaders in academia and in policy which will attempt to set the research agenda for sustainable development following the Rio +20 conference. 

What will sustainable development entail? What are the most crucial questions we need to be asking? How should academia go about searching for answers that will actually inform real action and policy changes?
