1 Seminar: Old-new perspectives on development? The international agenda and the SDGs Alfonso Reyes auditorium, The College of Mexico. Mexico City, December 1 & 2, (Agenda, November ) Background In the last years, there has been a renewed international debate around development and the integration of several dimensions, such as gender, sustainability, population dynamics and environment, among others. Underlying this broad debate is the concept of development itself and, in addition, of the public policies needed at the national level. Along with the ongoing discussion at different international fora, new mechanisms are being defined to measure the challenges, gaps and to monitor the changes in issues such as poverty, inequality, climate change mitigation and social adaptation. The definition of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the intense debate that has followed, particularly regarding the system of indicators designed to set goals and evaluate the potential progress, reflect the international understanding of what development is today. Moreover, the selection of specific indicators leads inevitably to a hierarchy of the aspects to be addressed through public policies. 1

2 México has actively participated in the international discussion on SDGs and has played a leading role in the definition of the indicators. At the same time, Mexico currently holds the presidency of other international initiatives, such as the Statistical Conference of the Americas and the Regional Conference on Population and Development. The seminar organized by El Colegio de México, the National Institute of Statistics and Geography and the World Bank, has the main goal of reflecting on the concept of development derived from the international debate, on the system of indicators and on their link to national policies. We assume that bringing the international agenda to the country level and integrating different dimensions require reviewing the specificities of the diverse arena of public policies (social, economic, environmental, health policies, for example). Objectives From the revision of the international agenda on development, and particularly about SDGs, generate a space to discuss whether there is a new paradigm on development and its implication for the definition of economic, social and environmental policies at the national level. Reflect around the challenges related to the implementation of the SDGs at the national level, such as: (1) the link between a system of indicators and the national development policies; (2) the integration of the diverse dimensions, such as the environmental and social ones, into a coherent public policy framework; (3) the participation of different agents (international organizations, national and local governments, civil society, the academia) in the definition, discussion and design of the indicators and policies related to the implementation of the SDGs; (4) The necessary development of statistical and geographical capacities to follow and articulate with public policies for SDGs challenges. Organization of the seminar The event will last two days. There will be a keynote speech, five discussion panels, a round table and at the end, a discussion panel. Experts in public policy on topics included in the 2

3 SDGs, as well as Mexican officials, members of international agencies and experts in statistical and geographical information, will be involved in the panels. Particularly, the last panel, will consider to have a civil society representative and, a member of any of the organizations that have closely followed the discussion around the design, implementation and evaluation of the SDGs. The opening keynote, will provide elements in order to articulate the discussion about the broad framework of the development agendas in the international context (SDGs, Montevideo Consensus, COP21, COP22, IPCC). The round table, will contemplate considerations on the articulation between public policies and the implementation of the SDGs. Finally, the panel discussion at the end, will condense and analyze the learning of the seminar s two days work. Organization of the discussion panels Every panel will include 20 minutes for each presentations and 30 minutes for questions and answers. Depending on the number of speakers, each panel will last between 1 and 1.5 hours. Moderators are expected to play an active role, promoting the debate around the Mexican context. 3
