UNOPS and Oxford Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC) have recently developed a tool that allows mapping of project OUTPUTS to show how engineering is influencing SDG targets.

Have a look at this simple knowledge sharing tool 'sustainABLE' https://sustainable.unops.org/

As Steve Crosskey, head of Infrastructure Initiatives at UNOPS suggests: “It is a practical tool that allows users to engage with infrastructures relation across the SDGs at target level through 'thematic lenses' the first one for us being 'gender and women’s empowerment'. We just launched it at the 63 commission on the status of women in New York.”

“It identifies actions that can be included in projects to enhance ability of the project to influence targets that include a theme of women's empowerment. We hope to expand the activities list in the future, and case studies (currently just UNOPS projects). Obviously we would like to broaden infrastructure sub sector categories included, and have many more themes to look at.”

 


Continuing our collaboration with the Institution of Civil Engineers, ICE invite UKBCSD members to test, review, comment, collaborate with sustainABLE.     “we do want to open it up to others to contribute guidance, activities and case studies from projects around the world, and obviously, as mentioned, add other thematic areas.”  This is exactly what our leading innovating sustainable businesses need to better understand their impact and what methodologies they need to use to enhance their project delivery outcomes.
