SDGs

event

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.

publication

Drawing on experience in 11 countries and the European Union, this paper provides core elements and concrete examples for jointly advancing the Sustainable Development Goals and climate actions under the Paris Agreement. Five key challenges are explored: coordinating institutions, aligning national climate and SDG-relevant targets, mainstreaming both set of goals into policy planning, optimizing financial resources, and building mutually reinforcing monitoring and reporting frameworks.
