Author: Laura Bolton

The Paris Agreement aims to reduce the rate of climate change (holding the increase in global temperature to 2 degrees Celsius or lower) and strengthen country response to the impacts. The Addis Ababa Action Agenda is a set of policy actions to finance sustainable development including social protection, hunger and nutrition, infrastructure, international cooperation, employment and enterprise, ecosystems and peace. The 2030 Agenda provides a shared global vision followed by 17 goals and 69 targets. Climate change is acknowledged as one of the greatest challenges for achieving sustainable development. Sustainable development (SDG) goal 13 is dedicated to climate change. This helpdesk report reviews the similarities and differences in the policy agendas of the Paris Agreement and both the 2030 Agenda and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.
