DESA’s DPADM (Division for Public Administration and Development Management and Division for Sustainable Development) along with DESA’s DSD (Division for Sustainable Development) and UNIDO organized an expert meeting on “Readying institutions for integrated approaches to the 2030 Agenda “from 14 to 16 December 2016 at UNIDO Headquarters in Vienna. The meeting reflected on the interlinkages among the seven SDGs to be reviewed by the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in July 2017 (poverty, hunger, health, gender, infrastructure, oceans and means of implementation) and how public institutions and policies can best deal with these interlinkages.
