可持续发展目标的科学方法

巴黎—最近全世界数万人举行了基于事实而非虚构的世界观的游行,这是群众支持科学的最新例证。他们明白,科学真的可以拯救世界,因为它可以帮助我们解决最大的健康和发展问题。

这些问题构成了联合国可持续发展目标(SDG)的核心。2015年,国际社会就SDG达成一致,旨在到2030年建设一个更加繁荣、平等和健康的地球。十七项SDG包括了169个具体的小目标(target),它们构成了一个宏大的日程,意在解决从性别平等到可持续城市和气候变化在内的所有问题。总而言之,它们为二十一世纪的可持续发展提供了一个包容性的愿景。

但完整性可能需要以效率作为牺牲。很少有人能够说出所有SDG项目,更不用说解释各国在未来13年如何实现它们了。全世界的专家们——包括本周齐聚纽约参加联合国海洋会议的专家——正在为各自的小目标和大目标奔波。将这些努力整合在在一起仍然是一个艰巨的挑战。如果我们的领导人真的想要实现SDG中的世界愿景,就需要一份引导他们安然度过复杂的决策领域的路线图。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
