Youth and the global development agenda

Iván Martín
20 November 2014

As the Sustainable Development Goals approach agreement, Iván Martín has concerns about the place of youth in the otherwise ambitious agenda being proposed. He argues that development must offer youth more than just economic prospects, with employability alone being no substitue for developing meaningful social and political prospects.

The 2015 deadline for agreeing the sustainable development goals is rapidly approaching. With it comes a wealth of opportunities to renew efforts to tackle poverty, inequality and climate change. A series of events, starting with the D&C Days at COP20 in Lima, will debate innovative and inspiring ways to drive global progress.

To mark World Cities Day, and looking ahead to our event at COP20, Amina Khan takes a look at the importance of cities. Accounting for the majority of growth, but also the bulk of emisssions, how cities develop is vital to the #zerozero agenda.

Cities: where ‘form’ meets transformations

Amina Khan
31 October 2014

Amina Khan takes a look at the importance of the city in the considerations around how to reach both zero poverty and zero emissions within a generation, arguing that it is becoming increasingly clear that cities need to take more of a cross-sectoral approach in planning and policy, and that they need to lead the way in creating and utilising durable infrastructure, efficient mobility and optimal land use.

Financing the Future

17 March 2015 - 18 March 2015
Accra, Ghana
International public finance will play a crucial role in putting the Sustainable Development Goals into practice post-2015. But given its changing nature, and the proliferation of new sources and mechanisms of development finance, how can it meet the challenges of our new era? To set the stage for these debates, ODI and a global coalition of partners are hosting this conference in Accra, Ghana in March 2015.
