Climate Finance

Financing for Sustainable Development Report 2019

The 2019 Financing for Sustainable Development Report (FSDR) of the Inter-agency Task Force on Financing for Development warns that mobilizing sufficient financing remains a major challenge in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Despite signs of progress, investments that are critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) remain underfunded and parts of the multilateral system are under strain.

Profile of Paris

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.

Environmental Change Through Participation

Environment-related sustainable development goals have shown the least progress across Asia-Pacific countries. In tandem, regional reports, civil society and the news call attention to the increased vulnerability and marginality of specific groups of people in society – such as those exposed to climate change, migrant workers, or those affected by air pollution. More understanding is needed regarding the engagement of marginal and vulnerable groups who lie at the frontiers of environmental change.
