Accelerating SDG implementation and Strengthening Partnerships: Call for Innovative Proposals

When the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted in 2015, environmentalists hailed it as a landmark that could revolutionize how the world does business.

But in the years since, progress has been so slow that even some of the world's most well-known environmentalists are now calling for a rethink, the New York Times reports.

"It's time for the international community to wake up to the fact that climate change is real, it's happening, and it's not going to go away," said Evangeline Lilly, the Oscar-winning actress and executive director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.

"It's not going to go away, and it's not going to go away for good," she said last week in Bangkok, Thailand, where she's taking part in the 10th Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development.

The forum, organized by the UN's Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, aims to chart the region's path toward the goals, which include reducing greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate the effects of global warming, providing access to safe drinking water, and improving the lives of the planet's poorest people, among other things.
