A look at the ways different bodies can go about achieving and collaborating on delivery of the SDG's and whether these goals can be realised
This discussion particularly focused on the tension between cherry-picking and holistic approaches to the delivery of the SDG’s and the positives and negatives of both. The interdependency that exists between the SDGs is also addressed, for example between water security and gender inequality, which should be considered by all when strategizing about SDG delivery. Intergration of the SDGs with strategy and the assessment of the potential effects that failure of the delivery of the SDGs could have is also shown to be an important driver for delivery.
