Delivering Together on the Sustainable Development and Climate Action Agendas

Invitation Only

This event is organized by Galvanizing the Groundswell of Climate Actions (GGCA), a series of open dialogues that aims to bring the groundswell of climate actions from cities, regions, companies, and other groups to a higher level of scale and ambition.

2015 is a crucial year for global action on sustainable development and climate change. At the UN Summit for the Adoption of the Post-2015 Development Agenda in September, new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be endorsed by the UN General Assembly. And in December, governments are expected to reach a new universal climate agreement at COP21 in Paris. Solutions for both sustainable development and climate change are deeply intertwined. How can we ensure that the global response to these challenges is as integrated as the challenges themselves?

This event will focus on one crucial response to that question: the groundswell of climate and sustainable development actions being taken around the world by cities, regions, companies, civil society groups, and other sub- and nonstate actors. Experts from across the civil society, business, research, and policy communities, from both developed and developing countries, will showcase how bottom-up actions are already linking and implementing the climate agenda and Sustainable Development Goals today, and how such efforts can be further scaled to deliver on the ambitions of global goals in the coming decade.
