Practical Guidance for SDG Integration through Interlinkages Analysis and Visualisation

SDGs interact with each other forming an indivisible framework. Without taking into account the synergies and trade-offs among SDGs and between their targets, SDGs cannot be achieved in a harmonised way with the promise of leaving no one/no area behind. This session aims to draw the attention of policymakers and representatives from various business sectors to the importance of SDG interlinkages for integrated policymaking and implementation. The session will discuss findings from the use of IGES’s SDG interlinkages analysis and visualisation tool, which helps to inform where there are potential synergies and trade-offs between the SDGs. The session shares the key messages from the IGES flagship report that proposes taking a systems approach for achieving sustainable development transformation from an interlinkages perspective. In so doing the session will emphasise ways this method challenges conventional siloed approaches, exploring how such a lens can be used to reconcile existing trade-offs between SDG targets. Evidence-based policy recommendations for SDG integration will be examined at different stages of policy-making illustrated by IGES empirical studies in different thematic areas including sustainable consumption and production, climate change and mitigation, business interplay with SDGs and sustainable cities.
