Presentation of results in Chile
 
SDGs & Families presentation at the Universidad de Los Andes
Santiago de Chile, 28th May 2019
The Institute of Family Sciences of the Universidad de Los Andes, together with the International Federation for Family Development (IFFD), in collaboration with UNICEF and the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations, organized an event where to present the results of the Global Research Project on the Family and the Sustainable Development Goals.
 
What is the role of families and family policies play for the fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Goals? To find the answer, three international experts participated in the Seminar ‘Sustainable Development and Family’, the results of a study conducted by the UNICEF Innocenti Research Center. Ignacio Socías, director of International Relations of the International Federation for Family Development (IFFD), explained the scope and the foundation of the SDGs. In his turn, Dominic Richardson, head of the social and economic policy area of the UNICEF Research Center, referred to the SDGs and the Global Research Project. The Focal Point on families of the United Nations, Renata Kaczmarska, detailed the role played by the family as an active agent of social development and its importance for the fulfillment of the UN 2030 Agenda.
 
The event started with some welcoming remarks by one of the vicepresidents of the University and a keynote speech of a local academic, prof. Javiera Reyes, on the situation of the family in Chile. The Secretary of Childhood, Carol Bown, was in charge of closing the Seminar. She explained the government initiatives to put the family institution at the center of social policy, under the principle that “no public policy can replace the role played by the family.”
