Agenda 2030 Working Group

The CAN Post-2015 Group first united around the Rio+20 negotiations in 2012. With the looming UNFCCC 2015 deadline for countries to agree on an international plan to save the climate, and the 2015 expiration of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), CAN aims to bring the development and environment movements together.. CAN works closely with other NGO campaigns including Beyond 2015 and CIVICUS. CAN has also been active in the Open Working Group Process to define the new set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets as well as in the Intergovernmental Negotiation Process (IGN) to agree on the Post-2015 SDG agenda. Currently, CAN has joint positions with Beyond 2015 on the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda on both Environmental Sustainability and Energy.

Doubling Climate Ambition - How the Post 2015 and UNFCCC processes complement each other.

April 2014:

There is growing global recognition that climate change is a critical development challenge and one of the most important issues that could undermine sustainable development and poverty eradication if not properly addressed. Furthermore, choosing sustainable development pathways will in turn lead to action on climate change so both must be considered together.

Key Points

Climate Action Network (CAN) thinks that the Sustainable Development (SDGs) frameworks should include a goal on addressing climate change as well as mainstreaming climate action across all other relevant goals. Only then will action on climate change get the visibility that it deserves due to its importance, relevance and urgency.
