SDG 1

  1. Walking the path ahead

    ClimateGlobal

    Humanity should survive the decades to come, but will it thrive? A lot depends on how many costs our leaders are willing to pay up front, and how many they will wait to have inflicted upon them

  2. Enabling migration as adaptation

    Migrants and refugeesGlobal

    As the climate warms, more people will be forced or will want to move, both within and between countries. How do we ensure that migration is supported, equitable, and beneficial for migrants and for sending and receiving communities?

  3. The world cannot wait

    ClimateGlobal

    COP27 is the “number one litmus test” of how seriously the world takes the toll on countries that suffer most from climate change, according to the UN Secretary-General. November’s summit must finally make good on promises to deliver climate action that ensures a sustainable future for all

  4. A warmer world: are we ready?

    ClimateGlobal

    Even the most optimistic predictions show a significantly warmer planet by 2100. Rather than focusing on quick adaptive fixes, as many current plans do, countries must pursue climate-resilient development strategies that address the systemic nature of the climate crisis

  5. Future settlements

    CitiesGlobal

    As the climate warms, and as behavior and practices shift to mitigate and adapt, what changes will there be to the nature and location of human settlements?

  6. Reversing the destructive forces of inequality

    Economic developmentGlobal

    COVID has exacerbated already deep inequalities between rich and poor.
    If left unchecked, the forces creating inequality will become even more
    destructive as the climate crisis starts to bite, threatening all of Agenda 2030. The world must urgently redouble efforts to reverse these trends

  7. Funding those with the greatest need

    FinancingGlobal, Sub-Saharan Africa

    Global development finance has been thrown into disarray – first by the pandemic and now the war in Ukraine. Ramping up finance flows to LDCs in the short term might appear unrealistic, but it is more essential than ever if we’re to avoid even greater catastrophes ahead
