Dialogue convenings aim to address different themes selected from the SDGs framework spearheaded by Mr. Ban Ki-moon during his term as the 8th secretary-general of the United Nations. The dialogue series continues to bring together new networks of social science researchers, scientists, policymakers, industry experts, and young leaders to bridge disciplines and accelerate actionable strategies and solutions to advance a sustainable and just future for all. In its recent convenings, the dialogue focused on the themes of gender equality (SDG5) and energy security (SDG7).
We need to come together to organize all of Asia’s unique assets and strengths to achieve our goal of sustainable development and net zero by 2050.
