The FELD Action Tracker as a strategic initiative of the Food and Land Use Coalition (FOLU) tracks developments around food and land use, globally and in key countries. Ahead of COP27, the FELD team updated and expanded its systematic analysis of nationally determined contributions issued in the previous year. The updated analysis applied a sharp focus on what concretely NDCs provide in terms of explicit priorities, commitments and targets related to food and land use, and the extent to which they focus on action and implementation follow up in countries and across sectors. The analysis also expanded its scope from an original set of 15 NDCs in 2021, to now 24, including all G20 members, key forested, FOLU and other key countries, together representing nearly 80% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
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.

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.
