Although the Millennium Development Goal on safe and sustainable drinking water was met five years ahead of the 2015 deadline, UN […]

  • UK and US Lag Behind Other Countries on Climate

    June 21, 2015

    A recent survey found that people in the UK and the US do not support action on climate change, and lag behind other large emitters like China who are more willing to produce a meaningful commitment to address climate change at the upcoming Conference of the Parties in Paris in December 2015. In the UK […]

  • Need to Align Financial Markets with Sustainable Development

    June 21, 2015

    To seriously ensure the transition to a green economy, policy makers, business leaders and investors need to focus on long-term concerns and not short-term gains. Although there are many promising stories, such as a boom in solar energy in China and Japan, an increasing investment in off-shore wind power, and companies weaving sustainability into their […]

  • Widening the Group of Seven

    June 21, 2015

    Among the many ways in which the global community organizes itself, the groupings of countries into the G-7, the G-20, the BRICS and MIKTA for example, are some of the most powerful and influential international structures, and have historically made an important impact on global policy and the global economy. The G-7, formed in 1975, […]

  • Fragmentation of Global Trade

    June 21, 2015

    Over the last few centuries, the world has gotten smaller. With ease of transportation and communication increasing exponentially, especially in recent decades, a global community has emerged. Trade has been no exception to this trend, with global markets becoming increasingly interlinked in the last several hundred years, but Nicholas Kwan at the Hong Kong Trade Development Council says this trend has numbered days. The “new normal” will […]
