The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the most ambitious international effort to integrate the three dimensions of sustainability into a universal vision for the future, but the interconnectedness of its 17 SDGs requires national and local governments to overcome siloization and consider existing synergies and trade-offs. This book, edited by Laura Cavalli, Manager of SDSN Italy, and Sergio Vergalli, and including texts by Angelo Riccaboni and Phoebe Koundouri, provides a state-of-the-art, holistic overview of the employment of a Water-Energy-Food (WEF) Nexus approach to implement the seventeen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, with a geographical focus on applications in different African regions.
Since 2015, the Sustainable Development Report provides the most up-to-date data to track and rank the performance of all UN member states on the SDGs. The report was written by a group of independent experts at the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), led by its President, Prof. Jeffrey Sachs. A global plan to finance the UN Sustainable Development Goals is urgently needed, according to the report, and multiple and simultaneous international crises have halted progress on the universal goals adopted by all UN member countries during the historic 2015 summit.
In a world where climate policy increasingly requires the radical reduction of emissions wherever possible, the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA), the co-host institution of SDSN Russia, explores a different approach to the decarbonization of the Russian economy. According to the analysis of the RANEPA, the Russian economy can achieve 100% decarbonization using a wide range of feasible combinations of wind and solar power generation coupled with green hydrogen production.
