World Sustainable Development Forum

The World Sustainable Development Forum (WSDF) is a not-for-profit organization incorporated separately in Europe, Norway and the U.S. Its North American arm WSDF-NA, headquartered in Washington, DC carries 501c3 tax exempt status. WSDF is a global initiative to promote and mobilize global action for effective implementation of both the Paris agreement on climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the UN General Assembly. WSDF’s relevance and role lies in acting as a facilitator for helping with implementation of actions required under these two sets of agreements. WSDF is in a unique position because of its convening power with those who can act to meet the priorities of society defined by the Paris Agreement and the SDGs. WSDF is working to analyse and facilitate the transformation of society towards a post fossil fuel future while implementing the critical goals identified in the SDGs.

Why the World Sustainable Development Forum? (WSDF)

Governments reached a historic agreement in Paris in 2015 to tackle the growing challenge of climate change. In the same year the UN General Assembly adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals, with clear outcomes targeted for 2030. While governments will certainly work towards meeting their commitments both in respect of the Paris agreement and the SDGs, the urgency of taking adequate action requires grassroots initiatives involving all stakeholders. The World Sustainable Development Forum (WSDF), which has been established in three locations of the world, is attempting to create awareness; to spread information and knowledge; and to inspire action for meeting the challenge of climate change and implementing the 17 SDGs across the globe.
