2015 is a pivotal year for sustainability. COP21 represents the last opportunity to strike a legally binding, global agreement on climate change, which will ultimately underpin the success of the Sustainable Development Goals in delivering equitable global development. Urgency for such a consensus has never been greater, as expanding urban populations and accelerating resource destruction serves to both exacerbate and create new vulnerabilities to climate change.
