Abstract:

The United Nations Sustainable Development Summit was held in New York September 25-27, 2015 where 17 Sustainable Development Goals were identified as part of the newly adopted 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These 17 goals build on the Millennium Development Goals adopted in 2000 by the United Nations. The Sustainable Development Goals aim to end poverty, fight inequality and justice, and tackle climate change by 2030. Our panelists will discuss the new Sustainable Development Goals from the perspectives of their fields of study in soil fertility and international agriculture, natural resource-based economic development, community-level outcomes of natural resource development, and adaptation in natural populations. The discussion will include the implications, trade-offs, and realities of these goals.

Moderated by Gene Kelly, SoGES Associate Director for Research and Development; Professor for the Department of Soil and Crop Sciences; and Interim CEO for the National Ecological Observatory Network, Boulder.
