The UN gets the world's help in creating a development road map

The recommendations from participants in a recent online discussion, "The World We Want 2015," will be presented in Copenhagen to the United Nations high-level panel tasked with devising a post-2015 development agenda to succeed the Millennium Development Goals. "If the post-2015 agenda presents innovative educational strategies for the urban poor and mechanisms to broadcast and scale up true community-led solutions, the world will be much better prepared to bridge deepening inequalities," says Kerry Constabile of UNICEF.

  • Reducing food waste is key to future food security
    Reducing the amount of food that goes to waste among producers and consumers is becoming crucial as global temperatures creep higher, contributing to the severe weather events that limit the amount and availability of food, said Dennis Garrity, United Nations drylands ambassador. The "Think, Eat, Save" campaign of the UN agencies, the Environment Programme and Food and Agriculture Organization, aims to cut food waste globally.

    The use of nitrogen- and phosphorus-based fertilizers is increasing, and improper use is proving bad for the planet, according to a report from the United Nations Environment Programme. "Our analysis shows that by improving the management of the flow of nutrients we can help protect the environment, climate and human health, while addressing food and energy security concerns," said Mark Sutton, the report's lead author.
