We are pleased to invite to read the 18th newsletter of the CC&E network in a new design with news about new funded SDC projects, a special thematic focus on ‘Disaster Resilience’, news about policy processes and science & reasearch.
This year is likely to be a special year for the future orientation of our world. In fact, we are cruising fast towards the ‘post 2015’ agenda. The first big event will be the conference in Sendai, Japan, on a next global framework for better Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).
In December, the renewal of the global climate deal at the UNFCCC COP21 in Paris will close this ‘anno mirabilis’. Will we get a new agreement to address the challenges of a rapidly changing climate to be kept within manageable planetary boundaries? Along with these two challenges the process of shaping the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the successor targets of the current Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), is in full speed. As a modest network, we shall try to keep our feet on the ground and share our concrete learnings – hoping that some of it can nourish these ‘big tankers’ on an increasingly turbulent ocean of humanity.
In this edition you will find updated information on projects and programs financed by the SDC, and other activities and experiences that the SDC promotes worldwide. We invite you to learn more at this link.
