SDG 17

  1. Ideas into action

    ClimateGlobal

    At this mid-point to the 2030 deadline, it’s clear that action must ramp up massively if the SDGs are to be realized and climate catastrophe averted. Initiatives such as the UN SDSN Global Climate Hub can help get governments back on track

  2. 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

  3. Trade’s role in climate action

    ClimateGlobal

    International trade can play a vital role in tackling climate change and achieving sustainable development. But it calls on governments to set aside national interests and open up access to environmental goods, services, and technologies for all countries

  4. Climate-proofing to sustain peace

    ClimateGlobal

    Vulnerability to climate change is higher in many places suffering war, yet peacebuilding efforts often fail to consider climate impacts. In a warming world, where conflict and crisis persist, ensuring that efforts to sustain peace also support climate action must be a top priority

  5. 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?

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. Protecting global public goods fairly

    ClimateGlobal, Latin America and the Caribbean

    How can you achieve an equitable balance for investment, responsibility, accountability, and authority for natural resources that function as a global public good? Can efforts to restore the Amazon rainforest provide an instructive example?

  9. Leaving no one behind on climate action

    ClimateGlobal

    Systemic inequalities mean lower-income countries are often sidelined when nations gather to set climate policy. Giving communities who suffer most from climate change a meaningful seat at the negotiating table is essential if we’re to steer an inclusive course on climate action
