The UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) and the UNFCCC will convene the first global multi-stakeholder conference on synergies between the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change that will serve as an Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on SDG 13 (climate action) ahead of in-depth review of SDG 13 by the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) in 2019.
The ‘Climate and SDGs Synergy Conference’ aims to promote action around the SDGs and climate change, and deliver a set of concrete recommendations for strengthening the interlinkages between the SDGs and climate action.
This EGM is part of a series of preparatory meetings for the SDGs under review.
On 28 March, a high-level meeting on ‘Climate Protection for All’ is intended to “provide a bridge” between the Katowice Climate Change Conference, the in-depth review of SDG 13 by the 2019 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) and the UN Secretary-General’s 2019 Climate Summit.
