Synergies in action: Leave no one behind
Parallel session of Climate & SDGs Synergy Conference
Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)
Within "Synergies in action (II): Promoting cross-sectoral integrated response for a just transition", DIE organised a parallel session to foster discussions and interactive dialogues on how the principle of “no one left behind” is being mainstreamed into national development plans, institutional structures and coordination mechanisms related to SDGs, NDCs and Sendai framework.
The Global Conference on Strengthening Synergies between the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (informally the Climate & SDGs Synergy Conference), organised by UN DESA and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, and hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate, Denmark, aimed to align the climate and SDG processes, and stimulate action from stakeholders at the global, regional and country levels to maximize co-benefits. Limiting global warming to 1.5oC above pre-industrial levels, including through scaling up climate action towards both adaptation and mitigation, is an imperative critical to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda. The conference examined how best to advance joined-up efforts for both the SDGs and climate action at the global, regional and country levels, thus also helping to scale up levels of ambition towards these objectives.
