Overview

Global sustainability Tenacity is a non governmental, not for profit organization , registered in Wales. Our experts and staff work closely with leaders ,policy-makers , organizations , citizens, ngo’s, to turn big ideas into action , make the sustainable development goals a reality. Our work focuses on ten global goals at the intersection of environment and develpoment: climate action, affordable and clean energy, clean water , life on land and below water, sustainable cities, quality education, reduce inequalities.
We support sustainable development with open data , strongly believing that can make an impact across the globe. Its role in combating development challenges of the next 15 years, both as a tool for measuring progress and in finding solutions, is becoming more clear.

How we work

We start with data. We conduct independent research and draw on the latest technology to develop new insights and recommendations. We use our research to influence government policies, business strategies, and civil society action. We test projects with communities, citizens. companies, and government agencies to build a strong evidence base.
We don’t think small. Once tested, we work with partners to adopt and expand our efforts regionally and globally. We engage with decision-makers to carry out our ideas and elevate our impact.

Principals

#1: We are stronger when we collaborate
#2 : We bring the good in all actions

    Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning
    Investing in education is essential to developing a skilled workforce for the future and improving economic growth. Although the number of children in the world has grown, the number in primary schools has not changed.Additionally, the skills students learn in school don’t always match up with workplace needs. This contributes to unemployment and deprives businesses of the talent they need and that will drive broader economic growth.
  • We Support Goal 6

    Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
    Each river basin is unique, but there are a number of water trends that are occurring in many parts of the world. Freshwater consumption worldwide has more than doubled since World War II and is expected to rise another 25 percent by 2030. Declining water quality is an acute problem around the world due to agricultural runoff, industrial wastewater, improper disposal of human waste, and many other issues. Climate change is affecting the hydrologic cycle, leading to more frequent extreme weather events, such as droughts and floods.
  • We Support Goal 7

    Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
    According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), some 1.6 billion people — 26% of the world’s population — had no access to electricity in 2002. At that time, it was estimated that, absent major new government initiatives, 1.4 billion people (18% of the global population) would still lack electricity in 2030. We have already undercut that estimate, as just 1.1 billion (15% of the global population) are living without electricity. SDG #7 is ambitious, and if we want to succeed we have to make a push to move from non-renewable to sustainable (renewable) energy sources.
  • We Support Goal 10

    Reduce inequality within and among countries.
    A large share of the world’s population — those living in low-income communities of developing countries — are locked out of the global economy. They have limited access to products, markets, and opportunities to increase their well-being and development. Despite all the global technological advances in recent decades, many have not received a significant or fair benefit from such advances.True policy innovation requires overarching measures that can enable the different actors to combine their strengths and complement their shortcomings, and thus achieve a synergy effect for enhancing inclusion and reducing inequality.
  • We Support Goal 11

    Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
    The ability of nation-states to tackle global problems such as climate change, poverty, and fragility will depend on how cities respond to these challenges. This is because cities account for at least 70% of total worldwide greenhouse gas emissions; are home to the highest concentrations of poverty; and tend to have higher homicide rates than rural areas. Interventions must account for the particular physical and spatial environment of cities and slums with a focus on recovering public spaces and bringing fragmented societies together. They should also build ways to improve social interactions in neighbourhoods, including through consultation mechanisms to avoid their being captive to criminal interests.
  • We Support Goal 12

    Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
    This Goal packs an incredibly ambitious and challenging set of targets. Achieving this goal would entail a significant — in some cases, drastic — change of behaviour on the part of governments, businesses, and individuals. Governments will likely need to introduce new regulations and legislation to curb excessive consumption of natural resources and reduce waste generation in a very wide sphere of activities. Large-scale behavioural changes require a mix of information dissemination, awareness raising, peer pressure, financial incentives, social rewards, and regulatory enforcement. Achieving the right combination of these ingredients is an art form and not so much of an exact science.
  • We Support Goal 13

    Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
    The case for action is clear – climate change has begun to impact all regions of the world and sectors of society, threatening global development and undermining the foundation of the global economy. Yet addressing the climate challenge also is opening up new opportunities for societies to grow and prosper.
  • We Support Goal 14

    Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources
    Whether we live on the coast, or on a landlocked mountaintop, the world’s oceans and seas impact our life. Oceans play a vital role in regulating the earth’s temperature and climate patterns, acting like a giant solar panel that soaks up heat from the sun and distributes it across the earth through a complex system of currents.The next time we take a deep breath of fresh air, thank an ocean. Tiny phytoplankton produce about half the oxygen on earth, and form the foundation of the ocean’s ecosystem. These small creatures are critical to the survival of larger species, including the fisheries resources that directly support the livelihoods of about 10% of the human population.
  • We Support Goal 15

    Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss
    Rehabilitating, restoring, and protecting our lands has the potential to solve a major issue facing humanity: climate change. Given the intricate feedback loop between land degradation and climate change, and with soils as the second-largest carbon sink on earth, it is only natural that working to keep the carbon in the soil through reduced erosion should be seen as a critical contribution to combating climate change.
  • We Support Goal 17

    Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
    Enhance the global partnership for sustainable development, complemented by multi-stakeholder partnerships that mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources, to support the achievement of the sustainable development goals in all countries, in particular developing countries
