Pursuing Coherence Between the Sendai Framework, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Paris Agreement
- David Stevens; Andrew Mcelroy
Progress has been made in building coherence for the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda at the global level, particularly through shared indicators with the Sendai Framework to assess progress. Risk-informed development is now an underlying principle for the 2030 Agenda to ensure the sustainability of development gains. However, as Member States are moving forward with the necessary implementation actions, there is still insufficient alignment of the different agreements, evidenced by reviewing Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) and the National Determined Contributions (NDCs).
This high-level dialogue reviewed coherence between the sustainable development, climate change and DRR agendas at the national and local level, and identify actions that integrate effective approaches. Panellists will explore the (1) key benefits of ensuring coherence, identify the (2) commonalities of the three agendas, help understand the (3) roots of the existing separation, but more importantly put forward (4) practical pathways to coherence.
