SDG 13

  1. Towards a women-centered push for Agenda 2030

    GenderGlobal

    If progress on empowering women and girls was already far too slow, COVID and the war in Ukraine have made entrenched gender inequalities even worse. We must urgently ramp up our support for women and girls across all spheres of development, or the SDGs are doomed to fail

  2. In the balance

    ClimateGlobal

    Humanity’s failure to learn and adapt from repeated crises does not bode well for the bold, transformational changes that must happen urgently if we’re to achieve the world promised by the SDGs. There will be no second chance

  3. Multipronged action on the SDGs

    EnergyMiddle East and Northern Africa

    Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is undertaking a combination of pioneering projects in the UAE’s Hatta region, which exemplify its holistic approach to the SDGs

  4. Powered by partnership

    Food systems and sustainable agricultureEurope

    The Origin Green program has been driving sustainability across Ireland’s food and drink sector for more than a decade

  5. Developing a humane response to displaced people

    Migrants and refugeesGlobal

    Climate change, the threat of famine, and conflicts are driving more people than ever from their homelands. While the international community’s response to the Ukraine refugee crisis has been notable for its scale, solidarity, and humanity, there is still much work to do to ensure a fair and humane asylum system for all

  6. Cleaning up the air

    ClimateGlobal

    Air pollution is killing an estimated seven million people per year, causing environmental damage and climate change. Taking bold action now on black carbon, methane, and other short-lived pollutants, using existing, affordable technologies, can help us achieve 1.5°C and improve well-being for all

  7. Solving energy poverty: power beyond the grid

    EnergyGlobal

    Off-grid and mini-grid electricity generation can bring immediate benefits across the SDGs. They offer a least-cost approach to electrification, yet investment in them remains limited. What needs to happen to ensure these technologies play their full part in tackling energy poverty?

  8. Renewables siting must take the path of least conflict

    EnergyGlobal

    In most developed countries, renewable energy siting has been plagued with delays, contract extensions, and “NIMBY” protests. Project developers and government planning agencies must be transparent and inclusive in their decision-making to gain public support and reduce the environmental and social negative spillover effects of energy expansion projects
