Sustainable development goals
Speaking at the Stockholm EAT Food Forum 13 June, centre director Johan Rockström and board member Pavav Sukhdev, pushed for a new way of viewing the economic, social and ecological aspects of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The new illustration download high-res version here (credit: Azote Images for Stockholm Resilience Centre) is based on one of the iconic figures of the centre, “the wedding cake”, developed by centre science director Carl Folke and others. It implies that economies and societies are seen as embedded parts of the biosphere.
This model changes our paradigm for development, moving away from the current sectorial approach where social, economic, and ecological development are seen as separate parts. Now, we must transition toward a world logic where the economy serves society so that it evolves within the safe operating space of the planet.
Johan and Pavan concluded that actually all the sustainable development goals are directly or indirectly connected to sustainable and healthy food. They also put forward that goals on eradicating poverty (SDG 1) and zero hunger (SDG 2) requires gender equality (SDG 5), decent jobs (SDG 8) and reduced inequality (SDG 10).
Johan Rockström is Chairman of the EAT Advisory Board. Together with Pavan Sukhdev, Founder and CEO of Gist Advisory, he presented the new view of the SDGs in the opening key note speach at the 2016 EAT Forum.
