High-Level SDG Action Event: Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Agenda

High-Level SDG Action Event: Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Agenda On 23 March 2017, the President of the 71st UN General Assembly, Peter Thomson, in collaboration with the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Patricia Espinosa, is convening representatives from UN Member States, the UN System, and stakeholders for a High Level Meeting on Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Agenda.

The one-day event will seek to invigorate political momentum on climate change, highlighting its deep linkage to the Sustainable Development Agenda, with an emphasis on concrete solutions on climate and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that yield cross-cutting dividends, especially regarding land-use, energy and the ocean. The event will also seek to increase common understanding among key actors, including Member States, the UN system and non-state stakeholders, regarding the urgent need to ramp up ambition and implementation, especially given upcoming 2020 targets and milestones for both climate and the SDGs.

IISD Reporting Services, through its Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) Meeting Coverage, provided a web update from the High-Level SDG Action Event: Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Agenda. In addition, IISD Reporting Services has published a summary report in HTML and PDF.
