  • United Nations (UN). September 2013
  • The prototype Global Sustainable Development Report illustrates potential content, approaches and ways to engage policy makers and scientists, with the aim of facilitating Member States' deliberations on the final approach and scope. The summary includes seven sections representing planned report chapters: sustainable development assessments; a review of progress from 1950 until 2050, with the aim of putting economies and society onto a sustainable development path; the consequences of continuing a course of incremental progress until 2050; sustainable development scenarios; measuring sustainable development progress; the climate-land-energy-water-development nexus (CLEWD), including a pilot assessment in Mauritius and a global model; and future issues to consider. The final version of the report will be published in December 2013.
