OnFrontiers is producing this live conversation, which will cover why the United States should take the Sustainable Development Goals seriously, and how the world is doing two years after the global goals were agreed upon. The live event will also include a discussion about Professor Sachs’ new proposal for climate justice, which would introduce a standard for climate action, financing and payments between countries.
Jeffrey D. Sachs is Professor of Sustainable Development and Professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia University. He is Director of Columbia’s Center for Sustainable Development and of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network. His books include The End of Poverty, Common Wealth, The Age of Sustainable Development, and, most recently, Building the New American Economy.
