360info and SDSN Announce New Collaboration

360info 2 mins read

Public interest journalism initiative 360info has forged a new partnership with the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).

The two organisations will work together to build and strengthen global understanding of practical solutions for sustainable development, including the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

As part of their new joint initiative, the two organisations have collaborated to produce a solutions-focused special report on removing obstacles to implementation of the SDGs in the Indo Pacific region. The report, released today, comes as the mid-point of the SDG implementation. It comprises feature articles, videos and data visualisations by leading experts across the SDSN, and will be available for publication under Creative Commons 4.0. 

 

Access the report here.

 

360info’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Andrew Jaspan said 360info is delighted to be working alongside SDSN. We share a very similar remit however our focus is to deliver high-quality content written solely by university researchers worldwide that address the world’s most pressing challenges  - and offer ways to address, mitigate or solve those. 

 

“Additionally, because we work with researchers from universities in over 100 countries, we are able to draw in the usually marginalised and neglected voices, thinking and research from the developing Global South. Working with the SDSN team allows us to better deliver on this remit and rebalance global narratives.  

 

“Through our open source global wire service, we are able to support the world’s stretched and under-resourced newsrooms with free access to 360info.  And play our part in displacing poor quality information with reliable, safe and verified content. To date we have over 1,000 newsrooms taking our content and we hope that will increase. In that way, and working with SDSN, we hope we can further amplify the SDG agenda.”

Oxfam reaction to Zucman report to Brazil’s G20 Presidency on taxing the super-rich

Published today, economist Gabriel Zucman’s report―due to be formally presented at the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors’ Meeting in July―sets out a proposal for a global standard on taxing the ultra-rich. In response, Oxfam Australia Chief Executive Officer Lyn Morgain said: “This is a sensible and serious proposal that is in every government’s strategic economic interest. All G20 countries should support Brazil’s push to secure the first-ever global deal to tax the super-rich. We welcome the Zucman report, which offers a critical contribution toward fixing a system that allows the ultra-rich to avoid taxes and not only accumulate…
