Climate change – a challenge for sustainable development. Together, we strive to find solutions that facilitate systemic change
The challenges for international cooperation (IC) have grown more complex. On the one hand, poverty has taken on added dimensions; on the other, global challenges are increasingly demanding global responses. Although the social and economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been severe, climate change will remain the greatest risk and challenge facing humanity in the 21st century. How does climate change impact people and ecosystems? How can we achieve sustainable development given the challenges imposed by climate change?
The IC Forum will focus on ideas and approaches for effective change that is needed for development: Resource- and solution-focused options necessary, especially in areas such as food, production, consumption, energy and health, buildings and cities, but also financial resources in order to curb climate change and its negative effects on sustainable development and rising inequality.
