I’m delighted to announce that my provocative piece on the impact of #plasticpollution on the #tropics is the first published article in Journal of Tropical Futures published by @SAGEPublishers…

#plasticfree #plastic #plasticwaste #plastictreaty
Unsustainable #plastic production, use and mismanagement have resulted in increased #plasticpollution in the environment threatening #sustainability, especially in the #tropics.

#sustainabledevelopment #sustainabilitymatters #singleuseplastic
Countries in the #tropics have been disproportionally impacted by #plasticpollution due to imports of #plasticwaste from developed countries, or because tropical Small Island Developing States have become overwhelmed by #singleuseplastics used widely in the tourism sector.

Our paper "Genetic diversity loss in the Anthropocene" is out in @ScienceMagazine!

We study how genetic diversity is lost by habitat loss to help define @UNBiodiversity #Sustainable targets…

@Stanford Image
This all started with a deep worry about our lack of knowledge of global losses of genetic diversity and the call for more conservation policies that account for genetics @LindaLaikre, @seanmhoban, and others Image
in summer 2021, a new @UN press release (motivated by a piece by @sdiazecology 10.1126/science.abe1530) presented the goal to preserve “at least 90% of genetic diversity within all species”. Great news, but how do we get there and measure progress?…

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

23authors|9sectors|17739 literature|countless meetings

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

Fact: there are #BiosphereReserves in 131 countries 🌎

Each take a holistic approach towards ecosystem conservation & promote a full reconciliation with the living world through sustainable livelihoods & research.

A thread on @UNESCO_MAB's work #ForNature ⬇️

🤝 When places reconcile conservation with #SustainableDevelopment & research, @UNESCO designates them as #BiosphereReserves.

As of 2022, these amazing places are allowing 250 million people to learn and thrive on sustainable solutions! #ForNature

The Tsimane have always guarded the Beni #BiosphereReserve in Bolivia.

To create a sustainable economic activity and restore ecosystems, the Amazon programme - supported by @LVMH - is helping them build a greenhouse & providing native seeds.

The reform of the EU’s Generalised Scheme of Preferences #GSP, which provides significant tariff reductions to developing countries’ exports to the EU, is a major opportunity to improve the lives and livelihoods of over 2 billion people.🧵
Today the European Parliament’s @EP_Trade committee has sent a clear message that the forthcoming #GSP Regulation must be squarely focused on the core objectives of #PovertyEradication and #SustainableDevelopment.
The position adopted by @EP_Trade calls for enhancing the promotion of International Human Rights, Labour and Environmental Standards in the #GSP Regulation. Beneficiary countries of the GSP Standard scheme must sign up to more than 30 international conventions.

1. I am a Co-ordinating lead author of the #IPCC #WGII Chapter 18 on Climate resilient development (CRD) pathways, along with @AromarRevi and @bl_preston. CRD a foundational concept for the WGII report. But what is it? #ClimateReport #IPCC
2. The key message of #IPCC #WGII #AR6 Ch 18 is: Every development choice now moves us toward or away from a climate resilient future. This means that more than before, we see the connection of #SustainableDevelopment and climate change.
3. #ClimateResilientDevelopment (#CRD) is defined as the strategic combination of adaptation to climate change with mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions to support sustainable development. #ClimateReport #IPCC #WGII.

Fastest EU-membership negotiations ever, even faster than @Eurosurveillanc's rapid response.

Congrats @vonderleyen, @ProfKlausSchwab, @georgesoros.
Ah, btw. Uncle @ProfKlausSchwab, why did the @KremlinRussia_E hide this link?

It's just 4 months ago. Memory-holed?

Asking for my mommy.… Image
Ah, btw. @ProfKlausSchwab, why did you hide Putin's @wef-profile?

Why would you do that? Klaus?

I had to extra-retrieve it from That's not user-friendly.

A historic moment at #COP26 #Energyday: 20 countries incl. #UK #US #Canada agree to end international direct public finance in ALL unabated #FossilFuels by 2022, shift the billions to #cleanenergy. Why this is such a big deal and what must happen next? 1/8
This year has seen countries put an end to international #coal finance - #G7, #China at #UNGA, #G20. This is the FIRST time in history developing and developed countries alike acknowledge the socio-economic and climate risks of #oil and #gas public finance. 2/8
1/2 of signatories are developing countries, LDCs: a strong political signal to energy financiers that the argument "developing countries need more #oil & #gas finance for economic growth" is a constructed reality not aligned with real needs of these countries or the 1.5 goal 3/8

I assume it will take a couple of decades where we will see Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations across many petrol bunks, highway hotels, truck lay bays and may be few better technologies for smoother commuting of EVs, esp long distance travel.
What if ...
... the Executive help the automotive industry to fast track this possibility (even if there is disproportion initially, with the EV sales) so that we can lure the #ecoconscious public to make that switch from conventional vehicles a decade earlier than expected!
In other words, I am willing to make that switch now. But am skeptic because of the accessibility of charging during my travel (fairly frequent long distance traveller).
Damo, what's ur take on this da?

Ili uweze kuchangamkia fursa zinazotokana na sheria na kanuni za local content kwenye madini ni lazima kwanza ujue kuna nini jikoni. Kwa ufupi madini ni sekta inayokadiriwa kuzungusha Tsh trilioni 4 kwa mwaka kwenye manunuzi. Sasa tambua ni nini kipo ndani.

Fursa zipo za aina mbili
Moja utoe huduma kwenye migodi na sekta ya madini kwa ujumla, yaani huduma kama chakula (catering), ujenzi, Maintenance, huduma za meno na kinywa, bima, data, mawasiliano, usafirishaji, utafiti na kadhalika.

Naambatanisha tangazo hapa kama mfano
Fursa namba 2 kwenye manunuzi ni kuuza bidhaa. Hapa tunazungumzia bidhaa ambazo migodi na wadau wake wanahitaji. Hizi ziko nyingi sana, mfano grinding media, vilainishi, ground support, kemikali, baruti, vyakula kama nyama, matunda, ni vingi sana sana.

1) Engineered timber will revolutionize urban construction

By 2050, ~68% of world's pop. will dwell in cities -> rapid urbanization will req add'l infrastructure

Q: How can cities build to meet urbanization demand & also reduce CO2 impact at same time?
A: Eng. 🪵& here's why 👇
2) The 2 most common building materials today are steel & concrete

- Together, these materials generate ~10% of world's CO2 [greater than all but two countries: 🇺🇸& 🇨🇳]

- To have any shot at reducing the CO2 footprint by 2050, cities need #sustainabledevelopment alternatives
3) Advances in engineered 🪵 have opened up new structural possibilities

- Durable -> strength rivals steel but 80% lighter

- Modular -> Lego-like, prefabricated sections reduce transport times & streamline on-site flows

- Economic -> Est. to reduce construction times by ~20% Image
