Press: Can the UN Help Wean Us Off Our Fossil Fuel Addiction?

  • 2021•11•11

    Dr Adam Day is published in IPI’s Global Observatory on whether the UN could help to wean the world off fossil fuels. He offers three pathways outlined in the Secretary-General’s Our Common Agenda that could be used in coming years: looking beyond GDP as a measure of prosperity and progress, ensuring that young people and future generations are represented in such deliberations and that UN-supported programming be conditioned on long-term existential risks, and for the High-Level Advisory Board on Global Public Goods to consider actionable ways to address climate.
