Giving strong signals of transformation

This year provides an historic opportunity to recognize the benefits that a well-functioning environment brings to humanity in economic, societal, and cultural terms. World leaders will meet in September for the post-2015 development agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals, followed by the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December. In addition, in July, they will meet in Addis Ababa for the 3rd International Conference on Financing for Development. Discussions during the negotiations of these intergovernmental agreements point to the urgency of identifying scientifically sound and innovative solutions that build on the collaborative efforts of all stakeholders – governments, the business and finance community, and civil society at large.
