Abstract

Effective regional mechanisms are no longer confined to trade, finance and labour policy, but have increasingly been able to initiate regional social policies across a wide range of sectors. Building on this success, can they play an enhanced role in achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, with its focus on cross-border challenges intertwined across the social, environmental and economic spheres? This Issue Brief discusses the potential and opportunities for regional organizations to contribute to the SDGs and identifies priorities for action.
