What to expect from the intergovernmental negotiations on Post-2015?
Between now and September, government leaders will negotiate a to-do list for a better planet, the so called Sustainable Development Goals. They are a set of 17 goals applicable to all countries on Earth, and all sectors in each country until 2030.
Spanning economy, society and the environment, this universal set of goals is designed to guide the world's governments and 7 billion citizens in addressing our most serious problems with many solutions that already exist.
As we approach the midpoint of this this vital year for climate action things are heating up. A slew of climate related events, reports and meetings are scheduled throughout May and June, from the UNFCCC Bonn Climate Change Conference to the G7, and the UNGA High Level Event on Climate Change in New York. Beginning in late May, thousands of people around the world will take to the streets in hundreds of different actions to call for solutions to the world's greatest problems climate change, poverty, inequality and unemployment.
