Cambridge Global Challenges


The 2017/18 report is the first IIED annual publication validated by an external review of IIED approach to policy dialogues with regard to realising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The review identified three further ‘impact pathways’ through which the IIEd aims to deliver real change: research to policy; targeting policymakers; and by empowering the marginalised.

The report highlights 2017 IIED programmes focussing on artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM), trainign climate negotiators in some of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and facilitating African community engagement with the fight against the illegal wildlife trade (IWT).
