Issues

The challenges that shape the future dignity and well-being of our planet and its people are interconnected, and they underpin the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement. We focus on issues with transformative potential, we scan for emerging threats, and we stimulate new thinking to help the UN deliver better for everyone, everywhere.
