                              • “While the UN report has the merit of outlining a clear and radical path, while also advocating for simplified indicators, it does not really address the question of governance and management.”

                              • COP27 will be African or will not be

                              Instead of limiting the debate to the opportunity or not of taxation, why not engage in a broader reflection on a new way of directing profits?
