Fragile Planet - The Politics and Economics of the Low-Carbon Transition

05 August, 2019
Ashim Paun, Lucy Acton, Amit Shrivastava, James Pomeroy and Tarek Soliman (HSBC)

The 2015 Paris Agreement has focused global attention on the need for countries to address climate change risks. But not all countries are equal, in terms of either their ambition or ability to achieve economies which are low-carbon and aligned with greenhouse gas emission trajectories which scientists say are necessary to limit warming to 2ºC. The associated transition in national energy systems and broader economies to a low-carbon world will present risks, but also opportunities.

Organized crime in the Amazon: Illegal mining hotspots

02 October, 2019
Adriana Erthal Abdenur, Igarapé Institute

A new form of organized crime has recently been emerging in the Amazon: illegal mining. Miners fell trees, use high-grade explosives for blasting soils and dredge riverbeds. But the impacts go beyond environmental damage, bringing with it a slew of other social problems. Peace researcher Adriana Abdenur urges policymakers to improve coordination and argues that diplomacy may help prevent further conflicts, corruption and crime.

15 July, 2019
Dr. Rainer Quitzow, Sonja Thielges, Prof. Dr. Andreas Goldthau, Dr. Sebastian Helgenberger and Grace Kageni Mbungu (IASS)

International cooperation in support of a global energy transition is on the rise. Initiatives and fora for multilateral cooperation are complemented by growing bilateral engagement to foster international lesson-drawing and exchange. Despite these promising developments, investment towards achieving SDG7 on clean and affordable energy is insufficient. This IASS Policy Brief discusses how international cooperation can support a global energy transition.

Beyond rhetoric: Why foreign policy needs to foster private sector SDG implementation

08 July, 2019
Benno Keppner (adelphi), Daniel Weiß (adelphi), Pietro Bertazzi (CDP) and Bibiana García (adelphi)

From conflict prevention to human rights protection – companies are vital for the success of the 2030 Agenda and foreign policy alike. But progress on SDG implementation in the business world is at a turning point. Foreign policy can and must play a decisive role by building a robust knowledge base, making use of economic diplomacy tools and bringing trade and foreign direct investment in line with the SDGs.

Peace Science Digest Special Issue - Climate Change, Security and Conflict

05 June, 2019
Peace Science Digest

For researchers looking into global security dynamics, it is becoming increasingly difficult to overlook climate change as a threat multiplier in conflict situations. While climate change may not directly cause conflict, it may be inextricably woven into pre-existing conflicts of power, ethnicity, and economic interest. Understading the role of climate-related impacts on security is therefore crucial for global peace.
