It is not easy to estimate the total economic cost of the effects of climate change and pest infestation that have devastated millions of hectares of cropland across different African countries.

By 2050, 68% of the world’s population is expected to live in cities, with almost 90% of the growth in urban population happening in Asia and Africa. Facing rapid urbanization, governments are increasingly adopting smart city initiatives as solutions for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 11-Sustainable Cities and Communities. ICT-based urban management has the potential to maximize the benefits of agglomeration, while minimizing negative impacts like pollution.

Each factor impacts the formulation of Turkish foreign policy to varying degrees.
The current global pandemic crisis (Covid-19) may affect international policy by transforming the foreign policy of many countries. Among these, the most affected could be the small-medium emerging powers that have pursued pro-active policies beyond their traditional regional borders, owing to the permissive multipolar environment. Turkey is amongst the countries that have widened the scope of their foreign policy in the last decade by following a multi-directional approach.
One small bright spot amidst the gloom of the global pandemic can be found in the far south of Thailand, a region blighted by over fifteen years of bloody and seemingly intractable conflict. In April 2020, the main rebel armed group, Barisan Revolusi Nasional or the National Revolutionary Front, announced a ceasefire until the COVID-19 crisis abated and offered their support for the public health response.
