UN's Lanzer: Peace will ensure the safety of S. Sudan aid workers
Violence in South Sudan has affected the ability of aid workers to deliver assistance and threatens their safety, writes Toby Lanzer, United Nations assistant secretary-general and a humanitarian coordinator in South Sudan. "The best way to honour the work of humanitarians in South Sudan is to work for peace; for an immediate end to all violence against civilians; for aid workers to be able to do their life-saving work in safety," he argues.

Cookstoves alliance benefits from "gender lens" perspective
Adopting a "gender lens" approach to development, which emphasizes gender rather than specifically women, can help investors find new solutions, write Sarah Kaplan and Jackie VanderBrug. Such an approach has helped the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, allowing investors to "enhance their business model and increase sales and adoption of their products and services," says Corinne Hart, director of gender for the alliance.

The case for folding climate change into the SDGs
Climate change needs to be integrated into many of the proposed Sustainable Development Goals rather than be a goal of its own, writes Ilan Kelman of University College London. "Placing climate change within the wider contexts of disaster, development and sustainability will tackle both adaptation and mitigation, but not at the expense of other concerns," he argues.
