Baromètre des Solutions durables is an aid to raise awareness and mobilize the general public, civil society, policy-makers and private sector stakeholders. It is the result of collective reflection by 22 NGOs, associations and organisations who share the belief that innovation will play a key role in achieving SDGs.
The 2017 edition of Baromètre des Solutions durables has chosen innovation as the gateway to a more sustainable world. Already a part of SDG 9, innovation can be further conceptualized as a truly inclusive process that is open to all fields of knowledge and know-how. To illustrate this dynamic, Baromètre des Solutions durables outlines innovative local initiatives such as e-health applications and the impact of social enterprises or partnerships in inequality-ridden areas.
