Dear Blue Blue,

One of the sources for this newsletter are alerts on the SDGs. Until now scanning them has been a rather depressing exercise - plenty of noise and initiatives, but all directed at individual Sustainable Development Goals. No sign of attempts to coordinate. So it was a welcome surprise this week to get “Killing Two Birds With One Stone” from the World Resources Institute. Not only do Eliza Northrop, Hana Biru and Mathilde Bouye stress the importance of linking the SDGs together, they go one step further and make a strong case for integrating with the INDC’s designed to achieve the Paris Agreement on Climate Change goals. A case based on strong economic reasoning and promising lasting sustainable benefits which as we have stressed before is key to success.
