The UN Agenda 2030, and the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs), play a prominent role in EU green and just transition policy. While the SDGs require a holistic and integrative approach, a meaningful way of advancing knowledge generation and application is tackling an approach that the PEER organisations already share: ecological risks alongside other sustainability challenges, and seeking application.

PEER-TRISD stands for PEER Research on Sustainable Development Goals: Tackling and managing risks with SDGs. It is a PEER project that started in 2018.

PEER-TRISD has created an understanding on SDG-related risks, SDG and risk monitoring as well as their governance in the public and private sectors. The project has co-created recommendations to support risk management in the implementation of SDGs in the policy field and among the practitioners. The project has conducted case studies from 5 countries to exemplify risk management and SDG implementation.
