Professor Harro van Asselt, Hatton Professor of Climate Law in the Department of Land Economy and CEENRG Fellow, contributes to an article on a road map to extend Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to 2050, published this week in Nature.

In this article, the authors call on member states of the United Nations, in the run-up to the UN Summit of the Future in September 2024, to adapt and extend the SDG framework to 2050. This will entail setting interim targets for 2030 and 2040 and final targets for 2050 that align with science and maintain high, yet achievable, national and global ambitions.
