Subject: Input to the 2019 GSDR

Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to request your input to the 2019 Global Sustainable
Development Report (GSDR). The GSDR, mandated by the United Nations' Member
States in the outcome document of the 2012 Rio + 20 conference, is meant to
strengthen the science-policy interface and provide a strong evidence-based
instrument to support policymakers in promoting poverty eradication and
sustainable development.

The GSDR is being drafted by an independent group of scientists (IGS),
supported by a task team of six UN-system agencies. Profiles of the 15 IGS
members are found here:

As part of its outreach efforts, the IGS is soliciting inputs from a diverse
group of scientific and non-scientific communities, from all over the world,
in the form of publications supported by short abstracts or descriptions of
case studies. Currently, we are requesting contributions in four major

(1) interactions among SDGs and their targets,

(2) transformation pathways towards sustainable development;

(3) looking beyond the SDGs (major issues identified by research which are
not explicitly taken into account in the SDGs), and

(4) the role of science for sustainable development. Contributions will be
acknowledged in the GSDR.

If you are interested in contributing to this important exercise, please
follow the below link to a questionnaire.

With many thanks and kind regards,

Ernest Foli, PhD.
Member of the Independent Group of Scientists
