SDGs - Interdependencies and Policy Coherence

On 29 June, nearly 60 participants from German and international development institutions met in Bonn to discuss the interdependencies of SDGs with a particular focus on SDG 2. The workshop was organised by GlobalHort and the German Development Institute. The topic was introduced with a keynote presentation by Dr. Imme Scholz, Deputy Director of the German Development Institute. In another contribution, interdependencies between SDGs were highlighted using horticulture as a case study. In seven working groups, the participants then discussed the links and trade-offs between SDGs in the German Sustainability Strategy, looking at health, poverty, energy, climate change, water, economic growth and conflict. This workshop is seen as the starting point of a series of related events.
