One World – A world trip four times a year
Previous editions of the magazine "One World"
Decent work worldwide is considered a key factor for reducing poverty. But there are major challenges – and the pandemic has only added to them.
Climate change threatens to slow down or even reverse progress in global poverty reduction. International cooperation is responding – together with the local populations.
Research plays a central role in reducing poverty and environmental damage. Especially in the area of food security, researchers contribute to great successes - and yet face huge challenges.
The sharp increase in climate shocks is threatening the lives of millions of people in the Global South. While these countries contributed least to global warming they are already bearing the biggest brunt. Project examples demonstrate how humanitarian aid and development cooperation can operate in conjunction to assist the most vulnerable in adapting to the new climate reality.
Ten years into the conflict in Syria, the humanitarian situation in the country has gone from bad to worse. While the need for help is growing, international assistance is under mounting pressure. Lack of funding and barriers to access are jeopardising support to several million people.
Access to health services has significantly improved in low-income and middle income countries over the last two decades. Yet, millions of people continue to die every year. Rather than expanding existing health systems, the focus must be on improving the quality of healthcare.
Although artistic freedom is enshrined in one of UNESCO's conventions, prospects for living out one's culture through artistic expression are under attack – all over the world. Yet it is precisely this area that has major potential to help foster social change, pluralistic societies and sustainable development.
How is the fight against poverty progressing? What actions have the various countries taken to achieve the UN's sustainable development objectives? How can rapid and effective action be taken when a crisis breaks out? With Agenda 2030, the collection and analysis of statistical data has also become more important for development cooperation. However, not all countries have effective institutions.
A forgotten time bomb: Mental illness can increase poverty, shorten lives and hamper the development of entire countries. Yet the issue is still neglected in international cooperation. Why this is the case and why there is hope after all is illustrated by experiences in three very different countries.
