Strengthening the Environment Dimensions of the Sustainable Development Goals in Asia and the Pacific: Knowledge-Sharing Workshop Proceedings

The Workshop on Strengthening the Environment Dimensions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Asia and the Pacific helps policy makers integrate SDGs 12, 14, and 15 into development plans, policies, and programs.

This publication summarizes discussions and information shared during a Knowledge-Sharing Workshop on Strengthening the Environment Dimensions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Asia and the Pacific. The workshop is an output of a technical assistance project, Supporting the Implementation of Environment-Related SDGs in Asia and the Pacific, to help policy makers integrate SDGs 12, 14, and 15—and select targets that are environment-related—into development plans, policies, and programs.

The workshop provided more than 100 participants from government, international organizations, nongovernment organizations, civil society, and the private sector in the region with an opportunity to exchange experiences and discuss issues and challenges encountered in implementing the environment dimensions of the SDGs.
