Case Studies

The case studies in this section were initially prepared for and presented at the “Standards for the SDGs” event, held on 26 September 2018 in Geneva, and co-organized by the UNECE and ISO.

It took place as a side session to the 41st ISO General Assembly (GA) and brought together more than 800 participants including representatives of the standards community, UN agencies, corporate entities, diplomats and local, national and regional policymakers. This video provides an overview of the event. After the opening, participants broke into 4 parallel sessions, to deep dive into SDG 6, 7, 11 and 13 and highlight success stories while discussing challenges and identifying solutions that would allow standards organizations and policymakers to work better together for sustainable development.

All the case studies presented at the event followed a common format, and are reproduced below.
