The Third Global Conference on Strengthening Synergies between the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (Third Global Climate and SDG Synergy Conference) will focus on the theme, ‘Building the Evidence Base for Synergistic Action in Support of Raising Climate and SDGs Ambition.’
The Conference, convened by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) and the UNFCCC Secretariat, is hosted by the Ministry of the Environment, Japan, in partnership with the UN University (UNU) Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES). It will consider the progress made over the last few years on synergistic action in raising climate ambition towards the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Agreement while putting the world on the right track for achieving the SDGs by 2030. The Conference aims to provide a unique opportunity to take stock of practical measures that are being implemented to advance climate and SDG synergies in regional, national, and subnational efforts, including through COVID-19 recovery plans and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
