2021-2023 STRATEGY

A think tank from the Global South to the world

This roadmap outlines the path Cepei will take over the next three years to contribute to the implementation of global sustainable development agendas. It focuses on three strategic pillars: Consolidating advocacy products, increasing the organization’s relevance, and expanding our scope of action. Institutional strengthening and sustainability are considered cross-cutting pillars. 

Strategic Pillars

These strategic pillars guide our work to comply with the organization’s mission. 

Asset development

We seek to strengthen our capacities in producing knowledge to influence decision-making for sustainable development.


We aim to generate a significant impact by offering relevant value to our audiences and partners and strategically disseminating programs and projects.

Global reach

We envision broadening our advocacy framework in monitoring and implementing global sustainable development agendas.


Between 2021 and 2023, Cepei’s work will be immersed in a global context of uncertainty and crisis, which will affect progress towards sustainable development. Our team will face these challenges over the next three years.

Changes in the world order

Shifts in the world order will be essential to understanding international processes in the coming years. The outcomes of the debate between multilateralism and nationalism will also help define future scenarios.

The data revolution

New technologies allow for renewed solutions for sustainable development. The need for open data and information privacy policies will become increasingly critical as a means of transparency and accountability.

Climate change

The world needs an urgent and profound change in how social life is organized to prevent new and more violent natural disasters. Also, we need to balance the environmental dimension of sustainable development with the economic and social.

Interconnection of global agendas

Progress towards sustainable development will only be possible if the 2030 Agenda is interlinked and aligned with other related agendas such as the Paris Agreement and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda for Financing for Development under an integrated human rights approach.

COVID-19 and its effects

The pandemic has posed the challenge of responding to and recovering from its effects while progressing towards sustainable development. Building Forward Better implies a short-term response and being better prepared to avoid similar situations.
