The Nordic countries have a joint pavilion at the UN Climate negotiations in Marrakech, November 7-18, 2016, under the auspices of the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Nordic pavilion at COP22 will highlight New Nordic Climate Solutions through a series of events and activities focusing on a greener future.
To better address the links between the Paris Agreement and the SDGs, countries need to adopt a two-prong approach. The event takes place at the New Nordic Climate Solutions Pavilion - Section DEL2, Blue Zone, COP22.
The approach should encompass setting a goal to immediately mitigate near-term warming through reduction of SLCP emissions and keeping the long-term targets as adopted in the Paris Agreement by mitigating long-lived greenhouse gases including CO2. This can be effective done through countries Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and SDGs implementation plans. This lecture will put forward the scientific case that the only realistic pathway for simultaneously achieving climate and sustainable development goals, so as to minimize the dangerous impacts of climate change on current generation and ensure that the development of future generation is not compromised, is by immediate concurrent actions on SLCPs and CO2.
