Problems In The World That Need To Be Solved

As expected, 2018 was a doozy for international cooperation and global development, featuring a mixture of highs, lows, and anxiety (at unhealthy doses) all around.Threats to international cooperation posed risks to tackling pressing challenges.In order to come up with new solutions, you can follow the rules of brainstorming: If you struggle with anxiety, actually picking a solution to your problem can often seem quite difficult.However, it is important to remember that not solving a problem can lead to more anxiety than trying to solve it, no matter how anxious you feel.This is not helpful thinking: it is better to act than to do nothing at all.To help you carry out your solution, you can make an action plan.But bright spots emerged, including the rise of new and refreshing voices standing up for collective action and global progress.

Your plan should include all the steps that you will need to take to carry out the solution, and it should be as specific and concrete as possible.For example, if my solution is to “get a new job”, some of the steps involved in that solution might be: Now that you have carried out your solution, you need to make sure that it is working.Sometimes the best-laid plans don’t always turn out perfectly, so it is a good idea to have markers that let you know whether you are on the right track.Here are six global issues to watch: From flooding to fires, climate change wreaked havoc on people’s health and livelihoods around the globe in 2018.In October, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned that greenhouse gas emissions must be drastically reduced within the next 12 years to stay within 1.5°C of warming above pre-industrial levels and avert the worst impacts of climate change.This is often the most difficult step because you now have to actually start carrying out the solution you chose.Most people are afraid that they might have picked the wrong solution, or that perhaps there is a better solution if they just think about the problem more.While countries made progress late last year on the rules governing the Paris Agreement, global emissions continued to rise, making clear the need for enhanced climate action by 2020 – when countries need to restate or raise the ambition of their Paris Agreement pledges.The critical moment for enhanced climate ambition in 2019 will be the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit, which he will host for heads of state and leaders from other sectors during the opening of the UN General Assembly in September.Centered around the theme “A Race We Can Win, A Race We Must Win,” the summit will aim to reinforce the risks of inaction, highlight promising examples of partnership, and double down on efforts to implement the Paris Agreement and transition to a low-carbon economy.Climate action will also feature prominently on the agendas of both the G20 Summit, hosted by Japan in June, and the G7 Summit to be hosted by France in August.
