Commonwealth Debate on SDP policy and practice

The Commonwealth Debate, held annually to mark the IDSDP, is a leading global discussion on SDP policy and practice.

Activity

Sport is recognised as an important enabler of sustainable development in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. But is the contribution sport can make to the SDGs limited by a current skills and knowledge gap? Two teams of experts, high-level officials and sport personalities will address this question during the 4th Commonwealth Debate on Sport and Sustainable Development. The Commonwealth Debate, held annually to mark the IDSDP, is a leading global discussion on SDP policy and practice.

Message

It is a day to reflect on the contribution of sport to the SDGs and how to maximise this impact, whether through more targeted policies, enhanced programme design and delivery or through increased capacity and capability across the sport for development community and beyond. The Commonwealth’s specific focus is on promoting the importance of robust national and international public policies and strategies on sport for development and peace and the critical importance of effectively monitoring and evaluating the contribution of sport to the SDGs.
