‘SDGs, climate week sent loud and clear message’

With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) now adopted and Climate Week drawing to a close in New York, Mafalda Duarte, Programme Manager of the Climate Investment Funds says the activity and impetus around climate and development sends “a loud and clear message” ahead of climate negotiations in Paris.

She said: “2015 is a crucial year for both climate and development.  We saw very clearly in New York that the transition to a low-carbon economy is essential if we are not to derail years of development progress.”

“The events of the past week send a loud and clear message to leaders to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support vulnerable communities to adapt to climate change when they meet in Paris.”

“The Multilateral Development Banks have all expressed their support for and commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals.  The CIF has been key in supporting MDBs scale-up their climate finance action and looks forward to doing even more in the future.”
