Joint Research with the World Bank on the Sustainable Development
Joint Research with the World Bank on the Sustainable Development
The Institute for Global Engagement & Empowerment (IGEE) at Yonsei University has partnered with the World Bank and will implement a joint research on the Sustainable Development. On 12th April, the World Bank announced that it will cooperate with the IGEE at Yonsei University to conduct a joint research to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of developing countries. The joint research team plans to publish a report that diagnoses the status of achieving the goals of sustainable development in Vietnam, Kazakhstan, and Egypt based on the SDG indicators adopted unanimously by U.N. member states. The $900,000 fund was set up by the Ministry of Strategy and Finance and the World Bank's SDG Fund to achieve the SDGs, and will be injected into each country's sustainable energy development, quality jobs creation and welfare system research, etc. The joint research team claimed that this will help the South Korea’s cooperation with Vietnam and Kazakhstan, which are key countries of the South Korean government’s New Southern Policy and New Northern Policy. IGEE was established in September 2017 as a direct institution under the presidency of Yonsei University, which also contributes to the university’s emphasis on social participation and works for the sustainable development of mankind. The 8th Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, is the Honorary Chair. In addition to the joint research with the World Bank, IGEE will contribute to the dissemination of relevant knowledge and information not only for experts but also the public through hosting the Online Knowledge Sharing (World Bank Blog) and the Global Engagement & Empowerment Forum on Sustainable Development (GEEF).
