Roadmap to the Sustainable Development Goals
April 29, 2021, 9:00am – 10:00am (Washington D.C. Time), 2:00pm – 3:00pm (UK Time)
On April 29, 2021, IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva will have a virtual conversation with Ian Goldin, Director of Oxford Martin Programme on Technological and Economic Change, on the topic of “Roadmap to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. At the same time, the IMF is going to publish a Staff Discussion Note: A Post-Pandemic Assessment of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The global pandemic has derailed progress toward the SDGs as developing countries now balance long-term investments in health, education, roads, electricity, and water with spending to protect lives and livelihoods. Bringing the SDGs within reach by 2030 will take a global effort from all stakeholders.
In the Staff Discussion Note, the IMF has run the numbers and provides a framework for developing countries to consider policy choices that can raise long term growth and bring in private investments in SDG projects. In this conversation with Ian Goldin, Kristalina Georgieva will look at country case studies and the kinds of reforms each can make to move towards the SDGs by 2030.
