2015 was a groundbreaking year, ushering in a new development paradigm, with the Sustainable Development Goals launched by the United Nations – known as the Global Goals – and confronting the most severe dangers of climate change at COP21 in Paris. 2015 was also the year the first edition of the Global Opportunity Report was published, and the timing was no coincidence. Amidst the forging of global political deals on the future of development, the Global Opportunity Report highlighted concrete routes to reach the global aspirations for a sustainable and resilient world.
