In 2015, the United Nations Member States, including the United States, unanimously approved 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. In a forthcoming book, leading legal scholars examine each of the SDGs and recommend a suite of government, private-sector, and civil society actions to help the United States achieve these goals. This Article is adapted from Chapter 15 of that book, Governing for Sustainability (John C. Dernbach & Scott E. Schang eds., ELI Press, forthcoming 2023).

William J. Snape III is Assistant Dean and Practitioner-in-Residence, American University Washington College of Law, and Senior Counsel at the Center for Biological Diversity. Elena Gartner is Staff Attorney at the Goddard Riverside Law Project.
