Policy coherence is essential to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda 2030. We recommend that the G20 puts policy coherence for sustainable development (PCSD) to the forefront of its actions and focuses on policy areas, where coherent actions can make a difference. Priority should be given (1) to improved coherence in the context of trade and investment policies, (2) to a comprehensive approach towards climate policy that extends beyond climate targets, (3) to these issues in the context of the partnership with Africa, and (4) to the policy coherence set-up within the G20.
