Well done for getting to the end of Week 3 of this course on Achieving Sustainable Development.

The last three weeks we have explored some of the major challenges we face in our world, and looked at case studies that are trying to solve these challenges.

But how do we know that we are really making a difference?

Coming up

Next week we will be looking at measuring the impact of sustainable development. What we mean by this is how we can evaluate the successes or failures of everything from a small scale project, to the large scale SDGs.

We will be looking at the case study of the Inspiring Women project in Uganda, and how the impact of this project was measured.

We will be finishing up the course by asking key questions about the SDGs, and whether they will really have an impact on our world.
