The Paris Agreement and the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development are both universally accepted political visions, which mark a paradigm shift: from a top-down approach, from international mandates to a bottom-up process, from a country-centred implementation process. However, the limited interaction between the processes of the two agendas, both globally and nationally, may hinder their effective implementation. In addition, aggregate analyses are lacking to improve understanding of potential overlaps, gaps and conflicts between the main instruments for implementing the two agreements, the NCCs and the SDGs. These analyses are essential to improve the political coherence of plans and strategies and improve the effectiveness of the implementation of both agendas. This document is intended to fill this gap. At the event in Paris, UN agencies, governments and businesses announced new investments in the fight against climate change, as well as initiatives to strengthen support for Africa, the Caribbean, small island states and more. By removing the threats of climate change – those that are already obvious and those that will influence the future of the planet – UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres today called on governments around the world to “stay the course” and continue to engage in the fight against climate change. Commitments under the Paris agreement represent only a third of what is needed by 2030 to avoid the most serious effects of climate change and underscore the urgent need to step up efforts by both the government and non-state actors, the UN`s environmental wing said on Tuesday. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres today called for global support for France`s initiative […] “We now have hurricanes and storms with a much higher frequency and intensity,” he said. The UNFCCC says it is ready to “start a dialogue with the U.S.
government on the impact of this announcement.” Unlike the less collaborative format of traditional massive online races (MOOCs), UNSSC courses combine reproduced components with synchronous and asynchronous activities that include approximately two hours of knowledge acquisition, two hours of real-life scenario knowledge and training application, as well as group work and collaboration with colleagues. In addition to self-learning, participants in UNSSC online courses also benefit from live webinars with renowned experts on sustainable climate change and sustainable development, which allow virtual interaction between instructors and participants in real time. Development practitioners from the United Nations system, governments, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, civil society and science. THE SECRETARY-GENERAL — “CLIMATE ACTION: MOBILIZING THE WORLD” NEW YORK, […] The authors conduct a comprehensive analysis that examines the extent to which climate measures contained in countries` NDCs combine with the 17 SDGs. The analysis, based on the results of the NDC-SDG connection tool, highlights both the areas in which sustainable development is located and which are directly addressed by climate change, and those that are not currently involved in the activities of the NDC. The paper shows that the actions described to varying degrees in the NMPs promote synergies with national development priorities, which reflect the agenda by 2030. The authors note that a large number of climate activities support, for example, SDGs 7 (clean and affordable energy), SDGs 15 (life on land) and SDGs 2 (zero hunger), but that there are significant gaps in the SDGs such as the SDGs 5 (gender equality), SDGs 1 (not poverty) and SDGs 16 (peace and justice). Indigenous peoples were at the centre of the COP on Tuesday when they strongly called for a solution to climate change.
