Integrating Climate Action into National Development Planning
– Coherent Implementation of the Paris Agreement and Agenda 2030
The adoption in 2015 of Agenda 2030 with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Agreement, the Sendai Framework and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda signalled an increasingly coherent international vision of sustainable development. Together they seek to move away from the siloed approaches and individual sector goals that characterised the MDG era to a more integrated and mutually interdependent post 2015 landscape. Having created this new international framework, the next challenge is to implement these agreements in a coherent way at the national level.
