    UNU-EHS and the Institute for Natural Sciences in Africa (UNU-INRA) are hosting a side event “Science to power Sustainable Development Goals: 11 years to maximize on synergies and opportunities between the Paris Agreement and Agenda 2030” at the UN High-level Political Forum (HLPF) on 9 July 2019 at 6.30-8.00 p.m., at Conference Room 4 in the UN Conference Building.

    Advocating the need to bring the Agenda 2030 (the SDGs) and the Paris Agreement together, the two institutes will explore the need for a science-based approach in the realization of the two agendas. They will also seek to identify ways in which climate change can be mainstreamed across the two sets of goals and consider several challenges relating to water, energy, land degradation, and management of marine ecosystems.
