High Level Breakfast Event : The 2030 Agenda and The Paris Agreement - Harnessing Synergies Through Coherent Implementation
22 Sep 2017
Delegate Dining Room, West Terrace, UN HQ
Climate Change presents the single biggest threat to sustainable development, and its widespread,
unprecedented impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable. Urgent action to combat
climate change and minimise its disruptions is integral to the successful implementation of the Sustainable
Development Goals.

The global and cross-cutting nature of climate change calls for synergetic and mutually-reinforcing
implementation of both the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement, as well as broad international cooperation
in building resilience and adaptive capacity, developing sustainable low-carbon pathways to the future, and
accelerating the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions.
