This report is a collaboration between SEI and the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW ). During the past year, researchers at SEI, CEEW and collaborating institutions have synthesized recent scientific evidence and ideas to prepare recommendations for action, guided by an advisory panel consisting of 27 experts in the field of sustainable development science and policy.

This report has been independently prepared by SEI and CEEW, with funding from the Swedish Ministry of the Environment. We note that our discussion
is carried out within explicitly normative frameworks, for example as expressed in international law, UN documents, UN metrics such as the Human Development Index (HDI), and other widely used metrics such as Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index.

An associated report, Charting a Youth Vision for a Just and Sustainable Future, presents the key actions for reaching a sustainable future, as articulated by young people themselves.
