October: SDG 9 Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
UN SDG 9 This will be a round table discussion with an opening presentation. The current challenges around economic growth and living standards are said to be dependent on industry and infrastructure but this impacts on all other SDGs. The UN statement around SDG9 says 'A functioning and resilient infrastructure is the foundation of every successful community. To meet future challenges, our industries and infrastructure must be upgraded. For this, we need to promote innovative sustainable technologies and ensure equal and universal access to information and financial markets. This will bring prosperity, create jobs and make sure that we build stable and prosperous societies across the globe.' It leaves national and community leaders to explore how best to make this happen.
