Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.
Sustainable Development Transition Forum
9-11 April 2014
Incheon, Republic of Korea
Introduction and background
The United Nations Office for Sustainable Development (UNOSD) will host the first annual Sustainable Development Transition Forum (SDTF) from 9-11 April 2014 in Incheon, Republic of Korea. The SDTF will serve as a global platform for sharing knowledge in the formulation and implementation of sustainability programmes, reviewing evidence of impact and charting new and improved pathways for implementation.

The SDTF responds to a call made in November 2012 by government representatives of developed and developing countries, civil society groups, United Nations and other international organizations, academic institutions, independent policy think tanks and sustainable development networks that attended the UNOSD inaugural international workshop on 'Strengthening Planning and Implementation Capacities for Sustainable Development in Post Rio+20 Context'.

The specific programme of the first annual SDTF will include the science-policy-practice interface for ensuring transition towards sustainability, and the facilitation of partnerships and communities of practice to advance sustainability strategy-making and implementation.
