Investing in Natural Capital for an Inclusive Green and Blue Economy to implement the SDGs and Paris Climate Agreement
New York, Tarrytown Estate, 19-22nd June 2017
The Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Climate Agreement have brought considerable focus on poverty reduction and climate change. Central to both poverty and climate, yet receiving much less attention is natural capital: life on land (SDG 15) and life in the water (SDG 14). Investing in sustainable management and conservation of terrestrial and marine ecosystems is key to the transition to an inclusive green and blue economy.
The Workshop on Strengthening the Environment Dimensions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Asia and the Pacific helps policy makers integrate SDGs 12, 14, and 15 into development plans, policies, and programs.
