夺取可持续发展的胜利

赫尔辛基/约翰内斯堡—世界正走在一条不可持续的道路上,必须尽快制定新方向,在经济主流中嵌入公平和环境的考量。为了达到这一目标,我们必须从现在开始实践可持续发展——不是说要顶着经济危机的压力如此,而是说正因为经济危机才要如此。

如今,我们面临着众多挑战。经济在动摇,生态系统岌岌可危,不平等性——不管是各国国内还是各国之间——显著增加。总而言之,这些症状有一个共同的根源,即狭隘的投机性利益压倒了共同利益、共同责任和常识。

作为联合国秘书长全球可持续性发展高级别小组联值主席,潘基文秘书长要求我们和全世界20为主要领导人一起,探索解决这些问题的办法。我们的任务很明确:找出如何为更多的人提供更好的机会,同时减少对地球的冲击。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
