The EU's focus on cooperation with China, China's growing engagement with Africa, and African countries' climate commitments under the Paris Agreement open new opportunities for trilateral cooperation. This paper argues that initial cooperation could focus on supporting renewable energy development.
This Briefing Paper analyses the opportunities and challenges of applying results-based approaches in the agricultural sector. We review three pilot projects and apply the five rural worlds concept by the OECD to analyse targeting in the pilot programmes and interlinkages between population groups.

Oil palm cultivation is expanding rapidly across the globe. Current discussions on ecological impacts focus on the destruction of forests, greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity loss. Little attention has been paid to concerns that oil palm expansion has severe impacts on local water resources.
Green bonds have been hailed as a key instrument of climate finance. They have, however, also a number of challenges. In order to address them and realise the potential of green bonds to finance sustainable development, it will be crucial to design an appropriate governance framework.
Broad international consensus exists about the need to scale up financing for green investments. However, private green finance is still scarce due to a range of microeconomic challenges. For enhancing private green investment, a coordinated approach of all actors of the financial system is needed.

Sub-national units will play an increasing role in the mobilisation of domestic resources for the 2030 agenda. They are also at the forefront in the implementation of the global reform agenda. Consequently, they also contribute to overcoming problems of fragile statehood.
Since September 2015 the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is intended as the basis for the actions of national and international actors. This article uses five donor-strategic questions to analyse what SDG-sensitive international development cooperation would mean.
Refugees are not short-term guests, they often stay for many years in their host countries. As a consequence, there are increasing calls to abandon the current policy of camps and build towns that enable the integration of the refugees. Uganda sets an informative example in this respect.
With the 2030 Agenda on one hand, and unchecked fragmentation on the other, the need for an executive authority, discussed for decades, has become acute. The paper argues that it can be build from exisiting structures, mechanisms, and resources by separating the coordination function from UNDP.
