The Workshop


UN Sustainable Development Goals


Implementing the SDGs presents opportunities for further improvement of post-2030 sustainability initiatives. Dr. Coscieme will discuss how synergies and trade-offs exist among the SDGs and how progress towards some of them can reinforce, or impair, the achievement of others. The rising awareness of the economic, security, social and moral dimensions of environmental challenges is calling for a broader consideration of environmental policy as an essential tool for delivering sustainable human and ecological development, wellbeing, and resilience. In addition, the increasing availability of environmental measures from satellite observations has the potential to substantially contribute to a broader implementation of the environmental SDGs at the global scale. All of this will likely shape future initiatives for UN-SDGs-like agreements and assessment of progress towards sustainable development.

Luca Coscieme is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie and CAROLINE research fellow from Trinity College Dublin. His research focuses on ecosystem services and natural capital evaluation and the Sustainable Development Goals indicators.


He has been awarded with post-doctoral scholarships in Europe and Brazil by the European Commission, the Italian Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies, the Irish Research Council, and the São Paulo Research Foundation.


Luca is contributing to theoretical and practical reforming of the economics discipline overcoming paradigms of growth at all costs. In 2014 he has been entitled subject expert in “Sustainability and Environmental Certification” by the University of Siena (Italy). Since 2015 he is a member of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) and the RESURBE initiative for transition to resilience and adaptation through community development under the umbrella of the United Nations (UNEP, UNDP and UNESCO) and FAO.


He is Editor of Frontiers in Energy Research and authored multiple publications on international peer-reviewed journals.
