This paper addresses the post-2015 development framework and the need to make climate action in all countries happen without further delay and to support poor people to respond to climate impacts they are experiencing already. The purpose of this paper is to describe different options for including climate change in the post-2015 development framework, and to facilitate a more informed and constructive debate by providing suggestions for possible target areas. A series of approaches to addressing climate change are discussed, including a 'light touch' or narrative-only approach in option 0; mainstreaming climate change targets to make all relevant goals 'climate-smart' in option 1; and three potential options for a 'stand-alone' climate goal in options 2-4.
