The Social Progress Index featured as a tool to implement and localize the Sustainable Development Goals at the T20 Summit, in Buenos Aires.
The Social Progress Index was featured in the most recent T-20* Summit in Argentina. Our Global Network Director, Franklin Murillo, participated on a high-level panel called: “Global and local implementation of the 2030 Agenda”.
The discussion focused on the influence of the decisions and actions of the G20 and its members on the success of the 2030 agenda around the globe. Frankshared the lessons learned from using the SPI as a way to translate the SDGs agenda into changes and communities worldwide.
The Panel also included George Gray Molina, United Nations Development Programme, Faith Mabera, Institute for Global Dialogue, Shehryar Khan Toru, Sustainable Development Policy Institute and Andrea Ordoñez, Southern Voice.
In addition to the panel, a new policy brief was written, demanding “more substantial evaluation and learning processes” to help implement the 2030 Agenda.
The paper cites the Social Progress Index as one of the tools that will help the G20 drive transformational change and can be downloaded here.
We are delighted to see how more partners and allies are using our tool to advance the global agenda in their communities, cities, and countries.
