SDG13 Climate Action
In May 2015, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), adopted resolution 71/11 to establish the Asian and Pacific Centre for the development of disaster information management (APDIM) in the Islamic Republic of Iran as a regional institution of the Commission.
This site contains links to the activities and tools ESCAP has used to strengthen environment statistics in Asia and the Pacific. It also contains a collection of outputs from these activities. One of the purposes of the self-learning materials is to provide background to reading the guidance documents. Another purpose is to provide insights into policy applications and data sources.
With the establishment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, the Human Development Forum at Tudor Rose has expanded its publishing operation with the creation of a series of volumes entitled A Better World, each dedicated to one or more of the 17 SDGs. This volume, published in May 2019, covers Goal 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
This webinar addressed some of these gaps focusing on the following questions:
- Why is the evidence review a key step in the development of FBDGs?
- What are the main processes involved? What is the current FAO process for conducting an evidence review?
- What are some challenges and responses in LMICs?
The webinar also highlighted two country cases and present FAO’s current work in this field.
This webinar provided an overview of food-based dietary guidelines focusing on the following questions:
- What are national FBDGs?
- How have they been traditionally used?
- What is their potential use?
The webinar also highlighted some examples of national FBDGs across the world and presented FAO’s current work in this field.
The Paris Agreement of 2015 is a remarkable example of collective leadership. No one individual, institution or country can claim to have singlehandedly created the Paris Agreement. Rather, over several years, thousands of individuals and organizations came together to contribute to the moment where 195 countries unanimously adopted the text.
This project is about telling those stories.
