The year 2015 is a crucial next step for creating sustainable development and addressing climate change. Increasing action on climate change with ambition and determination is key to sustainable development. The report of the Leadership Council of the SDSN provides solution-oriented recommendations that acknowledge and account for this. I welcome the report and hope it helps guide the climate change and sustainable development action agendas because future generations are counting on us to provide a stable model for sustainable growth.
