Countdown to the SDGs: Employing results, evidence and targeted investments

14:00 – 15:00 CEST

IFAD Innovation Talk 7

Join IFAD, the Asian Development Bank, ENEL Green Power, FAO, UNDP and others for a dialogue about how tracking results and targeted impact investing can drive the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In recent decades, the world has seen considerable progress towards the achievement of development outcomes that build towards peace and prosperity for all people and the planet - the heart of the SDGs. However, ever since their adoption in 2016, many goals have remained off track. Progress towards some, including Zero Hunger, has actually reversed in light of factors such as conflicts, climate change, and COVID-19.

The effective and efficient use of resources, policies and interventions is therefore crucial for enabling the global community to achieve this blueprint for sustainable development. The use of results and evidence to better monitor, adapt, and report on interventions is also helping to shape innovative public (and private) financing options for sustainable investments to achieve the SDGs.

This event will aim to answer the following questions, with a focus on SDGs 1 and 2:

  • How are SDGs tracked globally? What gaps and opportunities exist? What digital tools and other approaches can be used to monitor institutional contributions to SDGs?
  • How do institutions working on nutrition and food security, in particular, define their comparative advantage in helping governments address SDG2?
  • How can employing results for SDGs influence coordination across international, national, and local stakeholders? Can this have impacts on increasing ownership and coherence of efforts?
  • How can tracking SDGs mobilize new investments aimed at the most urgent social and environmental priorities?
  • What is the outlook for impact investing, and how can SDG performance monitoring prevent “impact-washing”?
