RISE and UN Development Programme, UNPD, jointly meet the challenge of delivering on the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) through the SDG Trendscanner initiative. The project explores different ways of identifying and understanding disruptive trends so that they can be used to create a more sustainable world based on the UN SDG.
Provide an opportunity to understand how different disruptive trends and key trends assessments are – or under which conditions can be – linked to the global SDGs, with the help of an online web-based platform.
Make it easier to identify disruptive trends with low probability high-impact characteristics.
Allow companies, the public sector, and other stakeholders to turn trend assessments into drivers for sustainable and scalable innovation, including by catalyzing opportunities for public-private partnerships.
Support decision-makers to develop, deploy and accelerate the uptake of solutions to sustainable development challenges with the help of disruptive trends.
Encourage providers of trend assessments to include possibilities to deliver on the SDGs in their reports
More informed strategic decisions for a large range of stakeholders and enhanced possibilities for these stakeholders to utilize disruptive trends to support global sustainability.
