Climate compatible development: generating co-benefits from climate change planning

Climate compatible development: generating co-benefits from climate change planning
Climate compatible development: generating co-benefits from climate change planning
Greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, our climate continues to change, and people continue to adapt to new environments [1]. The world now faces unprecedented threats from increased climate variability and change, the impact of which is compounded by chronic poverty, inequality, and rapid urbanization [2]. This combination of climatic and socio-economic pressures is expected to exert pressure on the ability of individual nations to achieve: (i) the objectives of the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) (1994) Article 2; (ii) the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and (iii) the priority actions in the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction UNDRR (2015) Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. Governments at all scales are increasingly under pressure to balance their budgets, while delivering higher quality services. Demand exists for guidance on how to deliver integrated policy approaches to climate adaptation and mitigation whilst also supporting sustainable development.

Abstract

Greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, our climate continues to change, and people continue to adapt to new environments [1]. The world now faces unprecedented threats from increased climate variability and change, the impact of which is compounded by chronic poverty, inequality, and rapid urbanization [2]. This combination of climatic and socio-economic pressures is expected to exert pressure on the ability of individual nations to achieve: (i) the objectives of the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) (1994) Article 2; (ii) the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and (iii) the priority actions in the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction UNDRR (2015) Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. Governments at all scales are increasingly under pressure to balance their budgets, while delivering higher quality services. Demand exists for guidance on how to deliver integrated policy approaches to climate adaptation and mitigation whilst also supporting sustainable development.
