2030 Agenda

Since its establishment in 1989, FEEM has devoted its research to sustainability issues becoming a leading institution on a wide range of environmental, energy and global economic issues. 

As such, FEEM has contributed to the scientific debate on sustainable development ever since it became a hot topic worldwide. Today, FEEM continues its commitment to sustainability by directing its research activities toward the UN 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). FEEM contributes to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda both in terms of tools and policy support. The Index developed by FEEM’s APPS project (Assessment, Projections and Policy of Sustainable Development Goals) offers a comprehensive assessment of current well-being and future sustainability. A powerful tool which aims at including the 2030 Agenda issues in the national strategic plans and also to identify mitigation processes required by the Paris Climate Agreement.  

As part of the UN SDSN (Sustainable Development Solutions Network) directed by Prof. Jeffrey D. Sachs, in 2016 FEEM became the hosting institution and a founding member of SDSN Italia.

SDSN Italia, ASviS and the Global Compact Network Italia, of which FEEM is a founding member, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to promote the 2030 Agenda through the involvement of civil society, institutions, and academic and business sectors at the national level. 

FEEM also supports SDSN Youth. In October 2016 SDSN Italia participated in the Vatican Youth Symposium, organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, SDSN and SDSN Youth.The event assembled fifty young people from over thirty countries to present their projects to achieve the SDGs. 

Moreover, among the FEEM traditional research activities and conditional to the in-kind research collaboration from all FEEM Research Programs, the following research topics on “2030 Agenda” will become the basis for the analyses:

  • Climate and energy infrastructure finance
  • Modelling of SDGs
  • The role of the private sector in achieving the SDGs
  • Experimental research on energy access
