UNDP’s Istanbul Development Dialogues

WHAT ARE THE ISTANBUL DEVELOPMENT DIALOGUES?
Since their 2015 inception as the Dialogues on Inequality, UNDP’s Istanbul Development Dialogues (IDD) have evolved into a global development forum where policy-makers, business leaders, and diverse experts – from journalists to designers – discuss the issues of our time. This year’s IDD, to take place 3-4 April 2018, will be about the reality of global development in 2018. Three years after the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were unveiled to the world with the most ambitious and comprehensive range of targets – from eliminating poverty to curbing carbon emissions – many countries and organizations are getting up to speed to carry out the SDGs and monitor their progress.

IDD: Connecting perspectives
Since their 2015 inception as the Dialogues on Inequality, UNDP’s Istanbul Development
Dialogues (IDD) have evolved into a global development forum where
policy-makers, business leaders, and diverse experts – from journalists to
designers – discuss the issues of our time.
This year’s IDD, to take place 3-4 April 2018, will be about the reality of global
development in 2018. Three years after the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs) were unveiled to the world with the most ambitious and comprehensive
range of targets – from eliminating poverty to curbing carbon emissions – many
countries and organizations are getting up to speed to carry out the SDGs and
monitor their progress.

It’s no mystery that achieving Agenda 2030
requires mobilizing unprecedented amounts
of knowledge, areas of specialty, technology
and funding. This can only be achieved if all
hands are on deck. A successful sustainable
development agenda requires partnerships
between governments, the private sector and
civil society. And at this stage, it also requires
outlining practical solutions for accelerating
progress on the goals.

THE ISSUE
Given the radical changes required
to achieve that agenda within 12
years, is the world moving forward
fast enough?

What government infrastructure is necessary to address economic, social, and
environmental challenges at once? How do we go from “billions” to “trillions”
in financing the transition to sustainable development? Are we making any
progress on measuring the goals? With technology experiencing a breakneck
transformation, what shortcuts can countries take to boost their development
results? How can governments navigate the present geopolitical fissures? How
can they manage risk in the current environment?

THE bıg storıes
Every single partner has its
own perspective on sustainable
development. We’re bringing
them together to talk about what
works and what doesn’t, and to
create successful paths to 2030.

The movers and shakers in the sustainable development field
– What countries are doing differently, and who is succeeding
– Initial conclusions that can be drawn from the successes and failures to date
– Practical initiatives for making concrete change

What IDD has to offer
IDD will offer 2 days of onstage discussions, providing insights from the very
people who are leading the battle for change. By the same token, the latest
research, analysis, and programming developments concerning these topics
will be presented and discussed
