An article by environment journalist Muryel Jacque in Les Echos highlights the conclusions from SEI-CEEW’s recently launched Stockholm+50: Unlocking a Better Future report: only one tenth of the hundreds of global goals for the environment and sustainable development agreed by countries have been achieved or have recorded significant progress.

Jacque picks up on what’s stated in the report; that the ‘action deficit’ is significant and that we do not have a gap in policies and aspirations, but rather in actions.

“For the Stockholm Environment Institute, other conceptual changes deserve to be put on the table,” she writes, adding, “Our relationship with nature must be redefined, from a relationship of extraction to a relationship of care.”
