SDG Climate Action Nexus tool (SCAN-tool)

The SDG Climate Action Nexus tool (SCAN-tool) is designed to provide high-level guidance on how climate actions can impact achievement of the SDGs. It can be used to identify how specific mitigation or adaptation actions may lead to impacts – either positive or negative – on the SDGs at the SDG target level and is ideally suited to help users develop an initial understanding of which linkages between climate actions and the SDGs are most relevant for them. Separate excel-based tools have been developed for mitigation and adaptation.

From this page you can download the mitigation tool, the methodology and results paper, and also access a simplified online interface of the mitigation tool. The adaptation tool will soon also be available for download.
