SDG 17

  1. 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

  2. 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?

  3. A G20 for the global good

    Global governance

    Recent years have seen the G20 become more factional, with countries competing for national advantage. Indonesia, holder of the G20 presidency for 2022, intends to rally the member countries to deliver a unified, coordinated response to global challenges: a G20 for the SDGs

  4. Accelerating change for 1.5°C

    Climate

    Leaders across government, civil society, and the private sector must support the rapid, exponential growth of low and zero-emissions technologies if the world is to achieve the Paris goals

  5. Aligning corporate ambition with the SDGs

    Climate

    While companies have embraced the aims of the SDGs, embedding them into their business operations is another matter entirely. The optional nature of the SDGs is one key challenge, but the greatest hurdle is understanding how to apply SDG indicators to day-to-day business operations

  6. Knowledge can set us free

    ClimateGlobal

    The world economy is unjust and selfish. Its flaws are stifling effective climate action. We must empower the next generation to shape the future, unencumbered by the distorted priorities that currently prevail

  7. Less is more: plugging the climate financing gap

    FinancingGlobal

    Funding for polluting projects remains alarmingly high. We need to urgently switch this finance toward sustainable projects. The relatively cheap cost of action now compared with the economic disaster of inaction is a math “no brainer” – and the time to act is now
