Content

Sustainable development - the balancing of environmental, economic and social goals - is the greatest challenge facing the planet today. While international initiatives often state the goals and targets needed to achieve sustainable development, a significant gap exists in developing the skills, practices and processes that advance good governance. In the context of global challenges such as climate change, energy, biodiversity, food production and clean water, new and innovative forms of collaboration and partnership are needed to bring together societal, business and scientific interests.
