New Members Joining the GSDR Community of Practice for 2022

Since 2021 a group of highly motivated professionals from the Latin American and Caribbean Region are forming the GSDR Community of Practice (CoP) , striving to maximize co-benefits and minimize trade-offs to drive faster implementation of the Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR). Breaking down silos between sectors and stakeholder groups they started to generate solutions for policy coherence that enable a smoother implementation and foster a culture of working collaboration. 

Now this group is welcoming additional new members, who will add to the discussions and activities with their projects, ideas and expertise for translating the global to the local and thereby contributing to the implementation of the SDGs.

Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues on Global Solutions Summit 2022

In the scope of a green technologies dissemination initiative implemented by GIZ in cooperation with the Global Solutions Initiative (GSI), the global circular economy agenda is being advanced through a series of Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues (CESD). They aim to inspire a conducive circular economy (CE) narrative feeding into the G/T20 process, building on the momentum of commitments on the circular economy and focusing on both analyzing mechanisms scaling-up circularity and devising context-sensitive strategies for their broad implementation.

Many GLAC Network members especially from the Solutions Lab Community are participating.

The CESD hosted two multi-stakeholder panels at the hybrid Global Solutions Summit 2022:

  • "Circular economy and global value chains" on March 28th.
  • "The growing imperative for a circular economy" on March 29th.

#Break the Bias on International Women's Day

This year's International Women's Day campaign asked us to reflect on how we can collaborate and #BreakTheBias to create a feminist future.

As a contribution to this discussion on 8th March, the Women's Leadership Taskforce of the Gender Alliance hosted a conversation with CEOs Ms Rama Kirloskar, Joint Managing Director of Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL), and Mr Baudoin Denis, CEO, BMW Group Norway.

They discussed how these two leaders conduct Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives in their own organizations, and what drives them to be role models and get their inputs for accelerating gender equality.

Let's #BreakTheBias together! If you missed it, watch the recording.

Based on its years of experience, the Global Leadership Academy has developed an effective approach to enable change on a personal, organisational and systemic level.

Our dialogue spaces enable knowledge sharing, connection and innovation dedicated to a particular societal challenge.
