Climate change

Furthering SDGs 2 and 12, this report argues that feeding a population of 10 billion people by 2050 with a healthy and sustainable diet will be impossible without transforming eating habits, improving food production and reducing food waste.
To advance goal 12 and 13, this report provides guidance on the “ambition loop” — a positive feedback loop in which bold Government policies and private sector leadership reinforce each other, and together, take climate action to the next level.

This paper advances SDGs 9 and 12 by investigating the construction of strategies aiming to up-scale low-carbon innovations from pilot to full commercial scale. The authors reveal that the growth plans conveyed in the roadmaps are overly optimistic and they call for policy rooted in realistic expectations and adequate to the phase of innovation.
This solution-focused report — the fourth in its series — offers 10 new markets which could help get the Global Goals back on track, such as blockchain-based land rights for Goal 10 and energy-efficient cooling for Goal 13. The report aims to demonstrate how global sustainability challenges and risks can be seen as opportunities.
Advancing goals 13 and 16, the inaugural World Forum on Climate Justice will bring together leading civil society groups, academics, business representatives, members of the public, and policymakers to foster new thinking and explore pressing topics in climate justice advocacy, research, policy and practice as we adapt to reach the 1.5°C goal.

The SDGs offer oppotunities for closer environment-poverty integration. However, to be transformative, they need a broadening of measures and indicators. This paper argues that indicators should include constituent roles of environment in wellbeing and poverty, furthering goals 1 and 3.

This article makes the case for transformative action in the food system to acheieve SDG 13 and UNFCCC agreements. Goal 12 is seen as central to this given the possibility of trade-offs between adaptation and mitigation, and amongst other SDGs.
To advance goals 7 and 13, and meet the global ambitions of sustainable energy transitions and universal energy access, this paper calls for transformations in the practice of knowledge-making and governance.
