The 2021 'super year' for climate, nature and people

This series of blogs will raise awareness and action on the interlinkages between climate, nature and people by exploring key issues around the global milestones throughout 2021.

The world is dealing with multiple crises – climate change, unprecedented biodiversity loss, rising inequalities and the COVID-19 pandemic. 2021, also known as the 'super year', is the year to increase calls for a combined approach to addressing climate, nature and development priorities that have traditionally been dealt with in silos.

This series will show how IIED and partners are helping to encourage a fairer and more sustainable world. The blogs featured aim to influence key moments in 2021 and lead to tangible action on a combined climate, nature and people agenda. We expect to publish two blogs a month written by IIED researchers and guest experts.
