United Nations Climate Change Annual Report 2019
Climate change affects all aspects of human life and life on the planet. Because nearly all human activities contribute to it, climate change is interconnected with many other global challenges and the responses to them. Cooperation between the secretariat, international organizations and other stakeholders ensures common direction, increases the efficiency of these responses and avoids solutions in one area becoming problems in another. The UNFCCC collaborates with numerous United Nations organizations to pool resources and convening power. The United Nations and other international organizations collaborate to provide expertise and technical and financial support to Parties so that they may effectively implement the Convention, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement, as well as other global agendas. The adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other global agendas has increased the need for close cooperation and coordination within the United Nations system as their means of implementation are interlinked. The secretariat helps countries to enhance their climate efforts, and thus contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, thereby making a real difference in communities around the world.
