Strategic Foresight for Sustainable Development Other Languages

Moving Strategically toward the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the UN organized a Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UNSDSN) and a Platform (HLPF) in order to harness the so called Data Revolution that could help to achieve systemically  the 17 Goals, by attaining local and globally the corresponding targets. For this purpose, there is a need to keep joining efforts and know-how to develop an appropriate framework and roadmap. This paper may represent a contribution based on the long-time experience of The Millennium Project (MP) dealing with the somehow related 15 Global Challenges. As matter of fact similarly to the SDG Index, the MP developed a State of The Future Index (SOFI) that has being monitoring for some time; and on this paper as an example we´ll show for the case of SDG13 that deals with the critical issue of Climate Action, how the MP has being working with its related Global Challenge 1 that deals with Sustainable Development and Climate Change.
