Shaping Renewed Multilateralism – UN Geneva 2021 Annual Report
The 2021 UN Geneva Annual Report was released on May 30 with a focus on renewing multilateralism in the wake of parallel humanitarian crises, economic shocks and pandemics. Following a call to reinvigorate multilateralism from various nations across the globe, the report showcases many of the actions taken in this spirit.
With a focus on multilateralism, there comes a focus on sustainability: under the chapter “A centre for sustainability”, many of the SDG Lab’s activities and engagements from 2021 are showcased as unique contributions towards achieving the 2030 Goals.
The Lab participated in several endeavors, as highlighted in the 2021 Annual Report:
- A joint briefing was held in collaboration between the SDG Lab and the World Bank Geneva Office provided participants with replicable examples of digital tools to drive new investments in infrastructure, enhance leadership, transparency and governance, and strengthen policy, regulations and legislation.
- The SDG Lab Learning Journey launched in December, which shares knowledge and skills that can help various actors help realize the SDGs. The Learning Journey site even goes so far as to give organizations tips and approaches to replicate the Lab’s methods and SDG focused partnerships.
- “It Takes a Global Crisis” podcast series is presented where the SDG Lab presented work on incentivizing sharing knowledge and expertise between development and finance communities.
