Accelerating climate change and global warming provide the most convincing argument that to achieve sustainable development goals brooks no delay. 2022 Tang Prize laureate in Sustainable Development, Professor Jeffrey Sachs, is not only a world-renowned Economist but also the Director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University and the President of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).

On 26 September 2022, at the forum staged at National Cheng Kung University, placed no.33 on the 2022 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings which assess universities against the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, Professor Sachs will address the topic, ‘Sustainable Development Pathways toward 2030 and Beyond’, shedding light on how Taiwan and the rest of the world can realize net zero carbon emissions by 2050 amid various challenges including the pandemic and constant geopolitical conflicts. Ensuing his speech is a panel discussion where he and experts from Taiwan will talk about the breakthroughs Taiwan and other countries are capable of making even in the face of a dwindling window of time, in order to continue pushing forward the agenda for sustainable development in an age of uncertainty with methods such as adopting effective regulations and strengthening international cooperation.
