Agenda 2030 Working Group

The CAN Post-2015 Group first united around the Rio+20 negotiations in 2012. With the looming UNFCCC 2015 deadline for countries to agree on an international plan to save the climate, and the 2015 expiration of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), CAN aims to bring the development and environment movements together.. CAN works closely with other NGO campaigns including Beyond 2015 and CIVICUS. CAN has also been active in the Open Working Group Process to define the new set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets as well as in the Intergovernmental Negotiation Process (IGN) to agree on the Post-2015 SDG agenda. Currently, CAN has joint positions with Beyond 2015 on the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda on both Environmental Sustainability and Energy.

Let’s leave no one behind

ECO congratulates governments on the adoption of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This not only provides positive momentum towards Paris but, also sends a strong message about the necessity of adopting an integrated approach to sustainable development.

The Paris outcomes should build on this momentum and promote the effective integration of human rights and gender equality into climate action. Such integration would provide three crucial benefits.

CAN Briefing: Comments on the Post-2015 Zero Draft, June 2015

~Climate Action Network values the efforts by the Co-Chairs to put forward a zero draft text to move the discussions on the post-2015 agenda forward. We believe the proposal’s structure can facilitate further discussions on some of the key principles and elements to strengthen the declaration in order to guarantee the desired implementation and outcome of the goals and targets. However, the preamble and declaration in the zero draft fall short of adequately addressing the important issue of climate change and sustainable energy access.
