2030 Agenda - Analysis and Consulting
With the adoption in 2015 of the 2030 Agenda, the United Nations created the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which serve as our global framework for sustainable development. The 2030 Agenda promotes and frames important discussions about how we can make the world more sustainable for people, the planet and our shared prosperity.
For the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, there are important points of overlap with the topics and sustainability goals of the 2030 Agenda. Taking up these topics, the 2030 Agenda department aims to make a contribution to the current debate on sustainable development by way of analysis and consulting.
The topics covered include the sustainable use of natural resources as a basis for life and a prerequisite for prosperity for present and future generations. Global warming, the growing world population and the loss of biodiversity are enormous challenges to which government and business must find answers. That is why we are working on policy solutions that will facilitate modern, reliable and cost-effective provision of energy, water and food in Germany, Europe and worldwide. To this end, we look comprehensively at all the relevant domains, taking into account not only the different capacities and prerequisites of individual countries and regions, but also those of urban versus rural areas.
Developing interdisciplinary solutions and strengthening multilateral cooperation is also a key challenge in the area of global health – and it is another of the main topics of the Agenda 2030 department. Promoting access to health care worldwide is a priority of the German government. Our work makes an important contribution to the discussion of how Germany can assume global responsibility in this regard.
On the topic of development policy, we address, among other things, the issue of sustainability in global supply chains and value creation chains. Our focus here is on the tension between political responsibility, corporate duty of care and economic competitiveness and the conflicting goals to which it gives rise. We contribute to the current political debates on sustainable consumption and production: among other things, by bringing in perspectives from the global partner networks that we cultivate with the help of our offices abroad.
