What are the critical challenges the world faces in meeting international climate change and sustainable development targets? That was the topic of discussion at a side event hosted by Future Earth and its partners on 15 November at the Bonn Climate Change Conference. The event, called “Reframing the Climate Debate: Enhancing the Paris Agreement and SDG Linkages,” addressed The World in 2050 project, a new effort to develop pathways to sustainable development within safe planetary boundaries.
