Homi Kharas, Interim Vice President and Director of Global Economy and Development at the Brookings Institution, will speak about his new book Leave No One Behind: Time for Specifics on the Sustainable Development Goals. He will offer practical ideas for transforming a slogan into effective actions which, if implemented, will make it possible to reach the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
Dr. Kharas served as the lead author and executive secretary of the secretariat supporting the High Level Panel, co-chaired by President Sirleaf, President Yudhoyono and Prime Minister Cameron, advising the U.N. Secretary General on the post-2015 development agenda (2012-2013). He has served on numerous panels and committees at Brookings including the High Level Panel on the Reform of the Development Assistance Committee (2017). His publications include articles, book chapters, and opinion pieces on global development policy, global trends, the global food crisis, international organizations, the G20, the DAC, and private philanthropy.
Prior to joining Brookings, Dr. Kharas spent 26 years at the World Bank, serving for seven years as Chief Economist for the World Bank’s East Asia and Pacific region and Director for Poverty Reduction and Economic Management, Finance and Private Sector Development.
