This study addresses a critical knowledge gap and is a fundamental contribution to inform future planning and priority setting for agriculture-related resource allocations in/across pre-, during and post-emergency contexts. The methodological approach used for disaggregation of data is outlined in Annex 1.

Access to jobs, services, and people is key to a city’s economic vitality and quality of life. Many cities are experiencing a decline in accessibility due to a confluence of rapid urbanization and motorization trends.

Climate change impacts on natural and human systems are increasing. Often affecting fragile economic, social and political systems, climate change is considered to be a serious ‘threat multiplier’. In this document, the risks on these existing systems are understood as climate fragility risks (CFRs).

In recent years, the number of people experiencing hunger – both chronic and acute – has been alarmingly and persistently high.

The publication ‘Water, Megacities and Global Change’ stems from the EauMega2015 Conference, organized at UNESCO Headquarters in December 2015 during COP21, which played a pivotal role in showcasing the significance of Megacities in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, especially Goal 6 of the 2030 Agenda, pertaining to universa

This sets out the impact of current global policies, the changes in the global fleet and new global efficiency targets to accelerate the uptake of clean and efficient vehicles for vehicle efficiency.

Electric buses, which have zero tailpipe emissions, hold the potential to provide outsized air quality and climate benefits. Faster adoption of cleaner buses is an important part of the bigger climate solution, helping put cities on track towards sustainability.

The UNICEF-WHO low birthweight estimates report presents new global, regional and national estimates of low birthweight, showing that 1 in 7 babies worldwide – more than 20 million babies – are born with low birthweight. This puts them at serious risk of death, stunting and developmental difficulties.

Electric buses could pioneer a new age of clean and efficient urban transport and put cities on track towards sustainability. However, electric bus adoption is not accelerating fast enough for the world to meet transport-related global climate objectives and help limit global temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius.

Geothermal energy is globally recognized as a clean and reliable source of heat and electric power supply. The environmental and social risks posed by geothermal energy projects share common features with those of mining and extractive projects, as well as other large-scale energy infrastructure projects.
