IBON International - Policy Brief "Reforming global sustainable development governance: A rights-based agenda"
Achieving sustainable development entails a global transition—away from prevailing inequitable and ecologically destabilizing patterns of development, to modes of development based on shared prosperity and environmental protection. Global governance plays a crucial role in this shift.

This policy brief from IBON International argues that the general thrust of reforming sustainable development governance should be towards greater democratization and strengthening people’s rights. A reformed institutional framework for sustainable development (IFSD) following a rights-based approach should help:

Redefine the goal of governance
Address power imbalances
Address social and economic inequities
Bridge implementation and accountability gaps
Enhance policy integration and coherence
