Advancing Climate Action and SDGs Synergies: A Way Forward

Joint event organized by the ISC in partnership with the UNDESA, IIASA and Future Africa POSTPONED until 2024
Advancing Climate Action and SDGs Synergies: A Way Forward

Please note this important event has been postponed until early 2024

Addressing climate change and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are inextricably intertwined. Without synergies, the SDGs and climate objectives will remain out of reach. Synergistic action needs be a required component of national commitments, reporting and financing for climate and development goals. Earlier this year, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat co-convened the Expert Group on Climate and SDG Synergy to develop the First Global Report on Climate and SDG Synergies. 

The International Science Council together with the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and Future Africa will organize a virtual event in early 2024 in the framework of the outcomes of COP28. The online event will allow for a dialogue on the key benefits for tackling climate and SDGs, discuss current barriers and enablers for the synergistic action, and outline a framework and existing approaches for synergistic action. 



Please note, you can still register for this event. The ISC Secretariat will be informing you of a new date soon.
