Equity the “new black”

In Durban in 2011 NAMAs were very fashionable amongst side-event organisers; this year Equity is making a strong showing in a bid to be “the new black”.

So it was without too much surprise that on Wednesday I found myself at a Christian Aid side event entitled, “Closing the Equity Gap – Is Equity an enabler or barrier to increasing ambition?”.
The side event’s panelist included the ERC’s Prof Harald Winkler.

The intent was to provide a forum to discuss how equity and the right to sustainable development could form the foundation for the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action.
