Conference: Regional and National Approaches toward the Sustainable Development Goals in Southeast Asia and ASEAN
Conference: Regional and National Approaches toward the Sustainable Development Goals in Southeast Asia and ASEAN. October 3-5, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
The SEA ASEAN Centre at the University of Groningen and the ASEAN Studies Center at Gadjah Mada University have organized a conference for October 3-5 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. We have invited 15 professors and senior scholars from ASEAN and Southeast Asia centres from the leading universities in the region, including universities in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Thailand, Brunei, and Cambodia.
The conference focuses on governance aspects of the sustainable development goals, including the challenges of implementation when moving from the internationally agreed upon goals and targets to national institutional arrangements. In addition, we wish to focus attention on the multi-level challenges of implementation, including the role of provincial and local governments within state structures, as well as ways in which ASEAN as a regional actor may be engaged and promote learning about best practices in the implementation of the SDGs across Southeast Asia. Finally, we are also interested in the ways in which stakeholders, businesses, civil society organizations and citizens are involved in consultation and implementation of the sustainable development goals.
The Rector of Gadjah Mada University, Prof. Panut Mulyono, will introduce the key-note speaker of the conference, Dr. Subandi Sadjoko, Deputy Minister for Development of Human Resources, Societal and Cultural Affairs, who is involved in the implementation of the sustainable development goals in Indonesia.'
