Several nations have developed agendas with the aim to achieve climate neutrality and the other transformations in the fields of biodiversity, circular economy, and agri-food systems while strengthening the economy at the same time. However, they often lack clarity as to how these approaches will be translated in their relations with other countries and regions, richer and poorer alike, and in specific external policy fields, such as trade, investment and security policy. The transformation towards sustainable development requires not only the transformation of specific domestic sectors but also of the relations between countries and regions. This includes tackling negative spill-over as well as positive concepts of co-transformation. How can this be achieved and what is needed? The session will bring together analyses and perspectives from different countries and regions.

The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and SDSN Germany invite you to submit an abstract for the Ninth Annual International Conference on Sustainable Development (ICSD) on 20-21 September 2021 (virtually). The conference theme is Research for Impact: An Inclusive and Sustainable Planet. The aim of the conference is to bring together persons involved in research, policy, practice, and business. Participants will share practical solutions for achieving the SDGs at local and national levels.

We are interested to receive abstracts for our panel on: “Green Deal Approaches and the Transformation of External Relations”.
