From July 20 to 31, government delegates aim to finalise the negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda, with the Sustainable Development Goals at its core. Then, at the end of September, world leaders are expected to convene in New York to adopt this agenda. Most likely, the sustainable development summit will integrate the Addis Ababa outcomes as the “means of implementation”.
And on the horizon we can already see Paris, where in early December governments are expected to agree on a new international climate change deal which – hopefully – will bring the world closer towards tackling climate disruption. From CARE’s perspective, climate change, sustainable development and poverty eradication are inextricably linked. Without curbing global warming to significantly below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, adverse impacts will be severe and irreversible.
