**Addis Ababa: a one-time opportunity**
The #UNConference on Financing for Development #FFD3 begins in #AddisAbaba today. The international community will be unable to achieve the #SDGs and mitigate #climatechange without adequate financing. It is up to every actor in the public and private sectors to take responsibility now.

**The nuclear deal with Iran**
Only if a ‪#‎nucleardeal‬ is achieved with Iran as planned by the end of June 2015 will sanctions against Iran be lifted. Such an agreement with Iran offers more opportunities than risks in the long term, says Bernhard Trautner.

**Migration to Europe – is North Africa Europe's boarder guard?**
Over 1,800 refugees have lost their lives in the Mediterranean Sea since the beginning of 2015, a statistic which shows that #Europe should have taken decisive action far sooner. Europe counteract the causes of #migration and avoid encouraging a further framing of its #migrationpolicy in security terms.

**Addis Ababa: Trying to square the circle, or – how to share responsibilities in an unequal world**

The UN Conference on Financing for Development #FFD3 in #AddisAbaba ended with a last-minute agreement. One of the most contested issues it faced was the question: How should responsibilities, including financial ones, be shared among industrialized and developing countries.

**Decarbonisation is no mean feat**

The G7 leaders explicitly committed to the decarbonisation of the global economy. Yet the word from Germany’s Economics Ministry is that the envisaged climate levy for coal-fired power plants has been scrapped. If this is true, it would only underscore the fact that decarbonisation is no mean feat.

**G-7: a turning point in climate policy or empty words?**

**Burundi – on the brink of escalation?**
So far hailed as a success story of post-conflict peacebuilding, the situation in #Burundi is currently strained. Yet, why did Burundi’s international partners not react before?
