Sakiko Fukuda-Parr and Bhumika Mucchala (PhD program student) published an article in the journal World Development: The Southern Origins of Sustainable Development Goals: Ideas, Actors, Aspirations. Recent literature argues against the overwhelming assumption in international relations that 'good ideas come from the West', that the 'North originate global norms' by showing that important role of ideas and actors from the South—informed by the history and development theories of those countries—in the emergence of the sustainable development concept and the formulation of the SDGs.

Michael Cohen participated in an Expert Group Meeting organized by the Urban Section of the UN Economic Commission for Africa in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on November 12-13, 2019. The meeting was convened to review the State of Urbanization in Africa Report produced for the Section by Gulelat Kebede, SGPIA Adjunct Faculty Member, and Liz Paterson Gauntner. The Report focused on increasing domestic resource mobilization to finance urban infrastructure and services and to contribute to national savings and investment. This two day meeting brought together officials responsible for finance and cities from the national and local levels from Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Kenya, Lesotho, Nigeria, Uganda, and Zambia. The meeting also provided an opportunity to discuss some collaborative work on urban performance in meeting the SDGs and the New Urban Agenda between the New School and UNECA.
