This high-level event is organized at the High-Level Political Forum 2019 in the context of the reviews of SDG 13 on climate change and SDG 10 on inequality reduction. Participants will share ways to better reconcile climate action and social equity. The event will provide recommendations and examples that countries can take up, especially as part of revising their climate plans – known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) - by 2020, and that could support a common narrative and concrete actions for just transitions at the SDG and Climate Summits in September.
