About Sustainable Urban Futures.. Cities, sub-national governments, local authorities and urban spaces are key components of any initiative for achieving sustainable development at the local, regional and global level.. As populations concentrate in the world’s cities, the future growth of urban centres is of particular concern for planners and policy-makers in both the developed and the developing world.. However, contemporary patterns of urban growth do not conform to previous experiences or expectations.. Large cities in the developing world have been attracting millions of people, many of them living in sprawling slums without the most basic necessities such as housing and sanitation.. People who live in the sprawling slums are more vulnerable to natural disasters.. Main Areas of Work.. Global Environmental Problems in Cities and Local Governments:.. Cities and Climate Change:.. Understand how and why cities are affected by climate change and understand how cities are coping.. Cities and Biodiversity:.. Analyze how the urbanization processes compete with ecosystems, looking at the institutional, economic and social dimensions.. Local Governance:.. Examine how local governance structures emerge and change, and how they affect the environment and development..

  • Title: UNU-IAS and CBD COP11
    Descriptive info: Events.. / UNU-IAS and CBD COP11.. UNU-IAS and CBD COP11.. Photo: R.. Blasiak / UNU-IAS.. CBD-COP 11.. The.. Convention on Biological Diversity.. (CBD) was inspired by the world community’s growing commitment to sustainable development.. With 193 UN Member States legally bound to the Convention, the CBD represents a dramatic step forward in the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use of genetic resources.. The Convention entered into force on 29 December 1993.. Since then there have been ten ordinary meetings of the.. CBD’s Conference of the Parties.. (COP), which is the governing body of the Convention.. COP advances the implementation of the Convention through the decisions it takes at its periodic meetings.. eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity.. (CBD-COP 11) will take place in.. Hyderabad, India.. from 8-19 October 2012.. This will be an important meeting, as the first CBD-COP taking place during the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity (2011-2020).. Government leaders, policymakers, and leaders from NGOs, the private sector and other groups worldwide will gather together to discuss numerous issues, including relevant safeguards for biodiversity with regard to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, as well as the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and the enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries..

  • Title: From the Director’s Desk
    Descriptive info: About Us.. / From the Director’s Desk.. From the Director’s Desk.. Govindan PARAYIL.. Director of the UNU Institute of Advanced Studies.. Vice-Rector of the United Nations University.. As one of the constituent academic units within the UNU family, UNU-IAS continues its high-level research, postgraduate teaching, capacity building, and advocacy work in advancing knowledge for policymaking for sustainable development.. Spanning the last decade, UNU-IAS has been focusing on key sustainability issues of global concern, particularly those on the UN agenda, such as climate change and the loss of biological diversity.. A milestone in this endeavour is the launching of our Master of Science (MSc) degree course in.. Environmental Governance – Specialization in Biodiversity.. We welcomed the first cohort of the MSc programme with twelve students from different countries.. This course is being offered in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (.. SCBD.. ), which has agreed to provide curriculum guidance, course materials and access to its experts as guest lecturers as well as placement for students for internship and theses content support.. We are working on signing MoUs with several Japanese universities in order to facilitate course and credit exchanges and resource sharing.. The MSc programme draws on UNU-IAS's long-standing reputation for excellence in policy-oriented research for sustainable development.. With growing international attention on environmental governance and the key role biodiversity plays in development and well-being, there is increasing demand for biodiversity experts with empirically- and conceptually-grounded training.. UNU-IAS will provide students with the intellectual foundation and practical field experience necessary for understanding and constructing environmental governance regimes at the local, regional and international scales.. The world is on the brink of a confounding crisis, which is brought about by a host of factors, such as rapid changes in our natural climatic conditions, global financial crisis, unsustainable production and consumption practices, depletion of environmental and biological resources, and a sharp decline in various indicators of well-being.. While noting that it is our actions and, more often, inactions that have precipitated these predicaments, it is imperative that we the citizens of our planet quickly come up with effective measures to mitigate the consequences and adapt to the changes in our socio-technological and natural ecosystems.. I am pleased to note that UNU-IAS  ...   and the need for bridging epistemological divides between modern and traditional worldviews in securing development goals and conservation priorities – all of which are topics that are of keen import to the CBD’s objectives as well as to the broader sustainable development agenda.. I expect each of these publications to provide a basis to inform discussions and facilitate designing of implementable policies as we look forward to CBD COP 11 in 2012 in Hyderabad, India.. We are also looking forward to actively participating in the deliberations of the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in June 2012.. We will be focussing on two major themes of Rio+20: Science, technology and innovation aspects of transition to a green economy with particular emphasis on poverty alleviation and job creation through fostering sustainable green industries; and the institutional framework for sustainable development with particular focus on governance issues.. As a think-tank, we will dedicate our attention on producing books, papers and policy documents.. UNU-IAS is taking the lead in publishing a book on these major themes.. We plan to hold two international workshops to present the findings of this book, the first one in early 2012 at UNU-IAS and the second one in Rio de Janeiro in late May or early June 2012.. Our research and capacity development work in all our programmes is going well.. My intention is to build on UNU-IAS’s research, teaching and capacity building capabilities to make it a leading institute of advanced studies on research and policymaking on sustainable development.. To achieve this goal, we have invited several prominent academics from Japan and around the world as UNU-IAS Visiting Professors.. In the coming years, UNU-IAS will continue to build on its strengths and advantages, which include our core in-house faculty, an expansive global network of renowned scholars, actionable policy-oriented research within a trans-disciplinary framework, strong links to a variety of international, regional, and local public and private partners, long-standing connections to intergovernmental processes, well-established postgraduate education, and capacity development programmes.. I look forward to working with colleagues and friends of UNU-IAS, as well as exploring new opportunities with partners in Japan and around the world, especially as we chart our way forward with the launching of our postgraduate programme..
