GLOBAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT REPORT - 2015 Edition

Abstract: 
True to its mandate, the report is designed as an assessment of assessments rather than seeking to pioneer new knowledge. It endeavors to present a range of scientific perspectives and to be policy-relevant but not policy-prescriptive. One distinctive feature of the report is its illustration of different vantage points from which to examine the science-policy interface and to view integration and interlinkages across goals, sectors, and issues. Its preparation involved an inclusive, multistakeholder process drawing upon scientific and technical expertise from within and outside the United Nations System.
