Achieving the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the Agenda 2030 requires holistic Sustainable Development Pathways (SDPs) that maximise synergies and avoid,
minimise or compensate for trade-offs. The orientation towards this much broader target space challenges the IAM community to broaden their previous scope considerably.
The final conference of the SHAPE Project, titled “New Sustainable Development pathways reflecting different societal perspectives”, will be taking place virtually on February 16, 2023, from 10:00 to 17:15 CET, and it will address this gap by aiming at creating and modelling a set of Sustainable Development Pathways (SDPs) with multiple integrated assessment models. The project’s multimethod approach involved a co-creative narrative design process, as well as analyses of governance, equity and material flows.
The programme comprises two main blocks: In the morning session, the overarching project results and their implications will be presented and discussed with representatives from politics, business and civil society. In the topic-specific afternoon sessions, project results and reflections of the inter- and transdisciplinary co-creation process of the project will be presented in more detail.
