UN SDSN project
and MED Solutions

1
 More than a billion of people still live in conditions of extreme
poverty, without access to basic health and education services
 The current global crisis and recent conflicts have exacerbated
hard situations of inequality (of income, gender, disability, age
and geographical collocation) and social exclusion
 Loss of biodiversity, degradation of waters, soils and forests,
and the effects of climate change are menacing the survival of
the mankind on the Earth
2
The planetary boundaries
 All the 191 member States of the United Nations agreed to define
precise and measurable goals guiding both individuals and
institutions in the struggle to problems of our society and to achieve
such goals within the 2015
 Mainly focused on the struggle to extreme poverty and the
discrimination in all its forms
3
Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)- 2000
MDGs
1. Eradicating extreme poverty and hunger
2. Achieving universal primary education
3. Promoting gender equality and empowering
women
4. Reducing child mortality rates
5. Improving maternal health
6. Combating HIV, malaria, and other diseases
7. Ensuring environmental sustainability
8. Developing a global partnership for
development
 In developing Countries:
 proportion of people living on less than 1.25$ a day from 47 % to 22%
(1990-2010)
 proportion of undernourished people from 23 % to 15 % (1990-2010)
 number of children without school education from 102 to 57 million
(2000-2010)
 mortality rate for children dropped by 41% and maternal mortality rate
dropped by 47% (1990-2011)
 1.9 billion people gained access to hygienic services (1990-2011)
However:
 Improvements have not affected evenly all countries
 Within some Communities social inequalities have sharpened
4
The progress towards the MDGs
 September 25, 2013: a Special Event on MDGs
organized by the President of the General Assembly of
UN
 Declaration, signed by Heads of State and Government from all
over the world, in which stronger commitment in the
achievement of MDGs by the end of 2015 was expressed
 Accelerating the achievement of MDGs is no more
sufficient to support the needs of a World in profoundly
changing
5
From the MDGs to the Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs)
 Three main paths to give SDGs effectiveness:
1. The identification of long-term pathways to the
sustainable development and to the achievement of
SDGs
2. The collection and promotion of new “solutions” in
support to SDGs
3. Networking for local and regional problem solving (with
crucial role of innovation and research)
6
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
 Created by the UN in August 2012 and directed by
Prof. Jeffrey Sachs (Earth Institute, Columbia
University)
 UN SDSN is an independent global network of
research centers, universities, businesses and other
institutions of civil society that aims to find and
facilitate the adoption of solutions that promote
sustainable development paths (www.unsdsn.org)
7
UN SDSN - The United Nations Sustainable
Development Solutions Network
 To participate to the global debate opened on the definition of
the SDGs
 ‘An Action Agenda for Sustainable Development’
 Produced by UN SDSN Leadership Council (June 6, 2013)
 Focus on social, economic and environmental topics and good governance
 Proposing 10 objectives, explicit and easily measurable
 To promote operational solutions to be adopted for the
effective prosecution of the SDGs
 Technologies, business models, institutional mechanisms and
policies that:
 have a transformative impact on sustainable development and can be
reproduced on a larger scale
 are technically feasible and do not require new basic research, but imply
only the recombination of existing technologies
 have not been experimented yet8
The purpose of UN SDSN
 „Energy Access for All in Sub-Saharan Africa‟, by ENI
 In rural areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, barriers to energy access
include lack of energy resources, lack of access to available
energy, and the prohibitive cost of energy from some sources
 SOLUTION: promote energy resources and the electricity
infrastructure for ensuring energy access for all in the region
 „ICT-enabled Community Health Workers‟, by Novartis
Foundation
 Across sub-Saharan Africa, community health workers using
mobile phones and broadband to access sophisticated medical
resources are delivering health care to where it is most needed
 SOLUTION: greatly expand that effort by training and equipping
one million health care workers by the end of 2015
9
The Solutions Initiatives of UN SDSN
Structured in:
 12 Thematic Groups (the first 7 reports - Sept. 18, 2013)
1. Macroeconomics, Population Dynamics, and Planetary Boundaries
2. Reducing Poverty and Building Peace in Fragile Regions
3. Challenges of Social Inclusion: Gender, Inequalities, and Human Rights
4. Early Childhood Development, Education, and Transition to Work
5. Health for All
6. Low-Carbon Energy and Sustainable Industry
7. Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems
8. Forests, Oceans, Biodiversity, and Ecosystem Services
9. Sustainable Cities: Inclusive, Resilient, and Connected
10. Good Governance of Extractive and Land Resources
11. Global Governance and Norms for Sustainable Development
12. Redefining the Role of Business for Sustainable Development
 a network of National and Regional Centers
10
The activity of UN SDSN
 Under the umbrella of UN SDSN, the University of Siena
has become the first Regional SDSN Center, named
MED Solutions (www.medsolutions.unisi.it)
 MED Solutions will act as a regional hub and will
coordinate the activities of a network of universities,
research centers and businesses interested in identifying
and promoting Solutions Initiatives in the Mediterranean
Region
 Why a Mediterranean Network?
 Shared history
 Shared environment
 Shared future11
MED Solutions
The UN SDSN Center for Mediterranean
 Implement networking among MED actors focused on
sustainable development
 Propose regional pathways towards sustainable
development, drawing on the work by 12 UN SDSN
thematic groups
 Collect and monitor new Solutions for the Med Countries
through the „call for proposals‟
 Develop teaching materials and courses on sustainable
development
 Promote applied research on sustainable development
12
