Decision-making Tool for Allocating Resources to Achieve Sustainable Development Goals

Dahdaleh Institute Planetary Health Fellow Byomkesh Talukder worked alongside Simone Philpot and Keith Hipel to develop a newly published report at the 2020 EEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC). The report seeks to provide a proposed framework which assist in allocating resources strategically to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

Abstract

With many countries integrating the Sustainable Development Goals into their national budgetary processes, there is a need for decision support to enhance decision-making pertaining to the implications of national budgets on the Sustainable Development Goals. An approach to decision support for integrating Sustainable Development Goals’ investment into resources allocation processes is proposed. Expanding on an existing values-based decision support system, the proposed framework captures synergies and trade-offs in the Sustainable Development Goals for efficient and purposeful budgetary planning. The proposed decision support system is presented and illustrated with a hypothetical example situated in Bangladesh.
