Stockholm+50: Creating a culture of accountable promises and bold action

Lack of accountability is a common problem across global environmental and sustainability regimes, which hinders progress on the SDGs. This event will discuss how accountability can be incentivized and operationalized for countries and companies via new mechanisms for nurturing constructive accountability and creating a culture of upholding promises. We will explore constraints and learnings across existing regimes and highlight findings of the Stockholm+50 Scientific Report by SEI and CEEW.

Investing in Climate Smart Solutions

The Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity report from June 2022 presents a synthesis of scientific evidence on the state of global environment, and identifies concrete actions under three broad shifts: redefining the relationship between humans and nature; ensuring lasting prosperity for all; and investing in a better future. The report analyses the barriers to change and underlines the ways to unlock progress by improving coherence, accountability, solidarity and a renewed multilateralism. It makes recommendations for reform and new thinking on complex issues of de-risking finance, co-development of technology, sustainable lifestyles, and others which need bold action now.
