    GSD is one of several UNU-IAS projects focusing on sustainable development governance. The project aims to contribute to global and sub-global discussions on implementation and follow-up of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the short term, and to propose policies and frameworks for a long-term transformation in human behavior towards a sustainable society. The research undertaken aims to examine the major challenges in the field of sustainable development and 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and fundamental questions on how to achieve sustainability in the twenty-first century. Particular focus will be on the Goal 12 on sustainable consumption and production.
    Part of the project is funded by the Ministry of the Environment, Japan, as part of the S-16 project of its Environmental Reserach and Technology Development Fund.
