The Paris Agreement On Climate Change As A Development Agenda

Date: 23 March 2017 Location: LOCATION of UN Headquarters: New York City, United States www: www.un.org/pga/71/event-latest/climate-change-and-the-sustainable-development-agenda/www.un.org/pga/71/wp-content/uploads/sites/40/2015/08/PGA-Letter-to-Missions_Climate-23-March.pdf Identify and articulate the links and interactions between the Paris Agreement on climate change and the 2030 sustainable development agenda in five key dimensions of sustainable development: people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership; On 21 September, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon convened a special event at UN Headquarters in New York on the introduction of the High-Level Climate Change Convention to table ratification, acceptance, acceptance, approval or adherence to the Paris Agreement on climate change. We have an agreement and we now have a chance to achieve our goal. We cannot say that without an agreement. The Paris Agreement will allow us to reach the target of 2 degrees Celsius or less. We did not expect to leave Paris with commitments to achieve this goal, but with a process that will lead us to it. And that is what the agreement provides. It`s worrying. Taking action to combat climate change is now economically viable. The longer you delay, the more you pay. We can promote economic growth, eradicate extreme poverty and improve people`s health and well-being by acting today. The agreement is ambitious and offers all the instruments we need to combat climate change, reduce emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change. Climate change is a cross-cutting theme for development, affecting all aspects of sustainable development and the overall agenda by 2030. The Paris Agreement on Climate Change, with the 2030 agenda, including the Sustainable Development Goals, is the most comprehensive plan to date to eradicate extreme poverty, reduce inequality and protect the planet.

Together with The Addis Ababa Action Agenda and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Prevention, these documents provide a comprehensive action plan for people, our planet and our prosperity, engaging all countries and stakeholders to act together. Sustainable development and climate protection are closely linked and interdependent. For example, the President of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Peter Thomson, in collaboration with the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Patricia Espinosa, member states, the UN system and stakeholders, is convened for a high-level meeting on climate change and the sustainable development agenda. The event includes roundtable discussions on: State of the climate ratification – The ratification of the Paris Agreement; Science Gaps and opportunities implementation of solutions – extension of the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the SDGs; and 2020 as an opportunity – to achieve the SDG targets for 2020 and the ambitions of the National Decisive Contribution (NDC). The event will highlight the synergies between climate change and the 2030 agenda and meet with representatives of governments, international organizations, the private sector and other stakeholders to promote solutions for the implementation of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. It will serve as an important tool to mobilize technological aid and build the capacity of developing countries. It will also help intensify global efforts to address and minimize losses and damage from climate change.
