Connections between the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda: the case for policy coherence

This working paper provides a global analysis that explores how the climate actions contained in countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) connect to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The research demonstrates that NDC actions to various extents foster synergies with national development priorities that reflect the 2030 Agenda. The research further reveals those sustainable development-related issues that are directly addressed through climate action, and those issues that are currently absent from NDC activities.
