"Geoforum" : a new article about Sustainable Development Goals
The universalist ambition of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets as a global plan of action for people, planet, prosperity and peacebuilding deserves analytical scrutiny from multiple angles. While the SDGs are largely heralded as a paradigm shift compared to their predecessor Millennial Development Goals (MDGs), a new article argues that four fundamental dynamics undermine or severely hamper SDGs as a game changer to address the deep-running sustainability challenges facing the planet. The title of the article is "Sanctioning Disciplined Grabs (SDGs) : From SDGs as Green Anti-Politics Machine to Radical Alternatives ?" The article, co-authored by Peter Larsen, has been published on Geoforum. You can read it online.
