Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter describes the transition process from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to their successor Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the status of the SDGs at time of writing. Based on the work covered in the book’s case studies, there appears to be a solid role for humanitarian work psychology (HWP) in the development and implementation of the global development agenda moving forward. Some practical applications of HWP to specific SDGs are outlined, as well as the future of HWP in terms of process, context, and theory.
