Found in: Research and Resources

A summary of bullet points from the seventh session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) reported in the last edition of the mailing is now available. The meeting which took place from 6-10 January 2014, at UN Headquarters in New York, addressed a range of topics including: sustainable cities and human settlements; sustainable transport; sustainable consumption and production; and climate change and disaster risk reduction.

A recent journal article in Biodiversity and Conservation argues that a better, more effective dialogue is needed between biodiversity science and policy to underpin the sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity. Drawing on literature, interviews and a workshop with individuals working at the interface between biodiversity science and government policy development, the article presents practical recommendations for creating dialogue which moves away from the existing ‘linear’ or technocratic model of communication.
