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 and 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 building towards peace and prosperity for all people and the planet, which is at the heart of the SDGs. However, since their adoption in 2016, many goals have remained off track; some, including attaining Zero Hunger, have actually reversed in light of conflicts, climate change, and COVID-19.

Effective and efficient use of resources, policies and interventions are 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 to achieve the SDGs is also helping to shape the innovative public, and private, financing options for sustainable investments.

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

  • How are SDG’s tracked globally? What gaps and opportunities exist? What digital tools and other approaches can be used to monitor institutional contributions to SDGs through results
  • How do institutions working on nutrition and food security in particular define their comparative advantage in helping governments to 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 to aimed at the most urgent social and environmental priorities?
  • What is the outlook for impact investing, and how can the SDG performance monitoring prevent “impact washing?”
