CAN responds to progress in the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda

21 July 2014

Monday July 21, 2014. New York: After a marathon session at the UN in New York last week, the world is now one step closer to a to-do list to end poverty that includes one of its main drivers: climate change. 

While there's still a long way to go, a growing number of countries recognise that we simply cannot eradicate poverty without dealing with climate change – a threat to so many of life's basics from food, to health, to shelter and livelihoods. 

The outcome of the Thirteenth Open Working Group – which will be taken to September's UNGA to kick off 12 months of negotiations on the goals – is an important step forward towards a fairer, safer and cleaner world.CAN will continue to work hard over the next 15 months to ensure the climate and energy goals can be as strong as can be to improve the lives of people in poverty around the world and eventually eradicate poverty altogether.
