The International Institute of Environment and Development (IIED), and GEC founding member, has released its 2014/15 annual report – ‘Shaping a fairer future’.
The report focuses on how IIED is delivering its mission to build a fairer, more sustainable world, using evidence, action and influence in partnership with others – including the GEC. It showcases the projects and partnerships that have shaped IIED's broader work over the last year.
IIED’s new director Andrew Norton highlights that in the coming year IIED will be looking at the implementation agenda around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in particular the impact that climate change could have on the planet's ability to achieve the 17 goals. IIED will also be looking at how to ensure that climate finance works in an equitable way.
A key theme of the report is the fact that in order to shape a fairer future, everyone’s voices need to be heard, and the voices of many of IIED's partners around the world – from the Alliance for Responsible Mining in Colombia, to the Kenya Forestry Research Institute – are featured.
