Policy Brief: A review of the sustainable development goals through a climate lens

Source(s):  ACT Alliance (ACT)

This policy brief effectively reviews the policy consequences of the unprecedented set of commitments made by the international community from 2015 onwards to pursuing a sustainable future through cllimate change adaptation through the adoption of the Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the Paris Agreement on limiting global warming to well below 2° Celsius.

In doing so, the brief sets out its arguments in the following structure: 

  1. An introduction
  2. The SDGs and Climate Change: Mitigation and Adaptation
  3. The Challenges Posed by Policy Integration
  4. Recommendations and Way Forward

​Find here some of the recommandations presented in the last chapter (4) of the brief. They directly come from the first global conference on strengthening synergies between the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development held in 2019 in Denmarkmade:

  • Facilitating more coordinated and coherent planning and policy making linking the two agendas, identifying the benefits by closely aligning the two agendas to inform decision making
  • Utilizing the UN system SDGs action online database as the UN system’s repository of actions, initiatives, and plans on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement
  • Examining how best to leverage advocacy, policies, and programmes, implementation mechanisms, inclusive multi-stakeholder action, resources, and partnerships for both the SDGs and for climate action so that co-benefits are maximized and trade-offs minimized at all levels
