Based on 2-yr meta-analysis, involving 61 international experts, we conclude that the UN #SDGs haven’t had much impact so far.

⬇️ Here’s what we have found in detail:🧵…
Our meta-analysis involved 61 experts, covering 3000 studies. Co-led w/ @HickmannThomas & @CASenit

We analysed whether #SDGs have brought about any discursive, normative or institutional changes in political systems.

Nationally & internationally.

Regarding #globalgovernance and the #UN system, we found mainly discursive changes, often reflecting longer trajectories that were supported but not caused by the #SDGs.

No major changes in #UN institutions or programmes.

HOT OFF THE PRESS: #FuellingFailure exposes the critical dangers that fossil fuels pose to all 17 sustainable development goals

Read more:…

Some key findings in a 🧵
As the UN commemorates 50 years since the 1st int'l summit on the environment @StockholmPlus50, #FuellingFailure finds that oil, gas + coal production + emissions are a primary threat to our water, health, biodiversity and ability to provide economic and energy security.
Today’s most pressing crises - from poverty, world hunger, health and conflict - are all made increasingly difficult in a warming world. Report co-author @Fred_Daley lays out how much we are undermining our own potential to fulfil the #SDGs with rampant fossil fuel production

Graduates from these 37 top-ranked universities will be able to apply to come to the UK under a new "high potential individual" visa scheme. None from Africa, Latin America or South Asia. That’s a big problem.

World's top graduates get new UK visa option…
If we really HAD to use rankings for this purpose (they were not designed for this), I'd look at the THE Impact Rankings, which assess social and economic impact, framed around the #SDGs. The world top 20 alone includes Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia:…
I've written before that the THE World University Rankings are becoming much more inclusive, as a global levelling up is clealry taking place, but the methodology is based primarily on research…

#IchBinArmutsbetroffen bedeutet leider auch, dass die Aufmerksamkeit von Betroffenen bzw. auf Betroffene durch Accounts delegiert wird & daher #Armut jenseits der Sympathie - Vorstellung kein Teilen erfaehrt.

Es ist verletzend, wie sehr meine Stimme Ausgrenzung erfahren hat!
Dafür ist nicht der # verantwortlich, was ich erst vermutet hatte, denn er ist offen formuliert und kann auf jeden Armutsbetroffenen bezogen werden:

Ob Alt oder Jung!

Ob Erwerbsminderungsrente oder Erwerbslosigkeit!
Ob Mann oder Frau oder Divers!

Ob Heteronormativ oder Homosexualität!

Ob Schwarz oder Braun oder Weiß an Hautton!

Ob Biodeutsch oder Menschen mit Migrationshintergrund!

Ob Mensch mit physischer Erschwernis oder physisch gesund!

Sie alle werden durch diesen # inkludiert!

Short answer:
1/🍯 bee, APIS genus, is one species among 20,000 ones,
2/ They carry out 13 works in 40 days, starting with nurturers, carpenters...storekeepers...Foragers are those who're more than 28 days old, follow the last ones, adventurers.

3/ No hierarchy, always collective interests, real #socialists,
4/ No obligations, some are lazy, will only practice one job,
5/ It's 1000 flowers per day & per forager, i.e. 4 times around the 🌍 for 1kg of 🍯, Earth-Venus for 300kg, thus spreading life.

7/ They maintain alive 80% of the Earth biomass, pollinating. The 19,999 species of #wild bees pollinates more,
8/ In 30 years their population failes down by 80%
9/ They were named as "The most important animal on 🌍"

What does gender equity have to do with climate change? A lot - according to science. It sits within the larger issue of #climatejustice.

A brief thread on Gender in the #IPCC #WGII and #WGIII reports. TL;DR: Discourse has shifted from women as victims to agents of change. 🧵🧵
Let's start with the #WGII key message. Emphasis on 'for all' mine - but this is key. Climate action must be for everyone/ especially the most marginalised, like women often are. 'For all' comes from #SDGs in case you missed it.
AR6 is different from previous reports - it centres around equity and justice. It identifies LOTS of adaptation strategies around the world, but notes that many of these are not effective. BUT: Adaptation solutions that are effective and feasible conform to principles of justice.

Nachhaltige Mobilität hat positive Wirkungen auf Klima, Umwelt und Soziales im Einklang mit den nachhaltigen Entwicklungszielen (#SDGs) der #UnitedNations.

Doch was ist eigentlich soziale Mobiliät?

Gibt es einen Zusammenhang von Raum- und Geschlechterverhältnissen?

Soziale Mobilität ist, wenn sich alle in der Gesellschaft barriere- und diskriminierungsfrei fortbewegen können.

I’m currently in #Japan,attending the 4th Asia-Pacific Water Summit, together with other high-level delegates including heads of states and representatives from international organizations in the Asia-Pacific region to discuss various water-related issues. #APWS @JapanGov

By achieving #SDG6, we amplify, exponentially, our ability to achieve so much more than the #humanrights to water and sanitation.
We enhance our chances of eliminating inequalities, supporting healthier lives, achieving gender equality – and combatting climate change.

Achieving #SDG6 is a golden opportunity that needs to be seized,to make it all possible.
The fact that this agenda is not yet receiving the prioritization it demands, is troubling. Especially as we’re talking about a fundamental human rights. Legal obligations. @JapanGov

Building on my thread below, I want to help policymakers committed to social, economic and climate justice better understand not only why #Bitcoin's proof-of-work consensus is essential, but Bitcoin's global value. We need policymakers to adopt a "walk and chew gum" approach. 🧵
2/ What I mean by a "walk and chew gum" approach is to step back from the fragmented silos in which public policy is far too often approached these days -- environment | housing | healthcare | food security | education | others -- and to adopt an inter-sectoral lens on #Bitcoin.
3/ In the same way that the "Social Determinants of Health" #SDOH and @UN "Sustainable Development Goals" #SDGs @SDGoals have rallied us to grapple with the ways in which diverse social, economic and political factors impact wellbeing & human development, so too does #Bitcoin.

1/ I’m just gonna say it. 🤷‍♂️ I’m skeptical of the pandemic because it presented the perfect catalyst to accelerate the implementation of a long-awaited global digital financial system that otherwise would have been under impossible scrutiny… 🧵 #TheGreatReset
2/ First, the gradual establishment of a one world government (New World Order), is no longer a “crazy” conspiracy theory, but general knowledge… 🌍🔀🌐
…It’s been the plan for decades and has gradually been ushered in by the UN, IMF and WEF, among others, over generations:
3/ Second, this New World Order (NWO) can’t succeed without a new digital financial system… and that system is moments away from going live… 😮
From the World Government Summit 2022: 👀

“We're about to introduce a new [financial system], what we call, blockchain."

#Bauwende Thread🧵1/xx.
Beginnen wir mit einer ganz unschuldigen Frage: ⏬
Die meisten vermuten wohl, dass✌️ Leute in einem #Einfamilienhaus wohnen?
13 Mio EFH gibt's in 🇩🇪, addieren wir die mit 2 Wohnungen sind es 16 Mio.
Teilen wir das mal durch 80 Mio Einwohner*innen.
Ergibt 5 Leute pro bestehendem 🏡.
Wow, ganz Deutschland?

Merken wir uns mal kurz, dass wir bereits genug Einfamilienhäuser in Deutschland haben, um in einer nicht ungewöhnlichen Familien-/ WG-Größe von etwa 5 Personen, alle Personen in 🇩🇪 in unseren bereits gebauten Einfamilienhäusern (und 2-FH) unterbringen könnten. #Bauwende 🧵3/x

Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.

Looking for key takeaways from the @IPCC_CH's 6th Assessment #ClimateReport on buildings? Look no further:…
1. Operating efficiency. Without strong policies to support true deep energy retrofits (achieving at least 80% whole building energy savings), we will not achieve Paris goals. Half measures impede further mitigation by locking in poor performance.
2. Renewable Energy. It highlights that for us to achieve a renewable energy future, we must maximize efficiency, and it recognizes that including energy generation in buildings is a step toward creating distributed energy systems. Buildings can become prosumers.

"A litany of broken climate promises, a file of shame cataloguing empty pledges that put us on fast track to an unlivable world & climate disaster. This is what science tells us will result from our current energy policies." @antonioguterres 👏🔥

1/ Where can we find the best #investments of the next 10 years?

Simple. We need to look where the world’s wealthiest action groups plan on investing $7 trillion to achieve their vision of a new world.

Lucky for us, they lay it all out in their "#SDGs for 2030" agenda: 🧵 Image
2/ In September 2015, 193 countries of the United Nations endorsed 17 Sustainable Development Goals to be attained by 2030. 🌍

“The #SDGs provide a common and agreed upon framework to advance the world's future by resolving our most pressing sustainability issues.”⏳ ImageImage
3/ To put it simply, the #SDGs act as a roadmap, directing the efforts of countries and global brands to achieve the UN’s vision for a better world.


…and It doesn’t take long to realize how massive this agenda is. #UnitedNations #Microsoft #Google #Samsung ImageImageImageImage
