The Sustainable Development Goals viewed through a climate lens

The publication highlights the potential for policy coherence in the implementation of the SDGs and nationally determined contributions (NDCs) of 164 countries.

The policy brief is based on findings from the NDC-SDG Connections Tool, developed by the German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and SEI, which analyzes connections between climate change and the SDGs by identifying synergies. The tool derives activities from countries’ NDCs into categories of climate action, and links these with SDG targets.
