Evidence grounds policy programmes in facts, allows the anticipation of potential scenarios, and fosters constructive exchange and collective decision making. Evidence-based decisions are essential for driving a sustainable and just recovery from Covid-19 and getting back on track with the SDGs.
This SDGs Learning, Training and Practice Session at the 2021 HLPF showcases sources of evidence in new tools, resources and knowledge platforms that can be used to support effective decision making for systems-level transformation amidst complexity and information overload.
Speakers from a wide array of sectors will highlight innovative and impact-driven solutions, including methods to measure national wealth, assess business and economic alignment with the SDGs, and the use satellite technology to track SDG progress and bolster disaster resiliency.
