Serving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Adopted by all UN Member States as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the 17 SDGs are a universal call to action that address a broad range of social, economic and environmental challenges to improve the lives and prospects of people around the world.

By integrating these four key SDGs into the agenda with the overarching theme being climate action, COP29 will galvanize global players at the event, to resolve these critical challenges and do their part for the planet and the communities that inhabit it.

Join us in policy discussions, exploring innovations and collaborating on solutions to achieve a better, healthier and more sustainable solution for everyone on the planet.

If we are to build a more sustainable world, we must work together and take urgent and impactful climate action now.

Framework for action


Our Fixed Objective

We all have a moral duty to avoid overshooting the 1.5°C temperature target. But the window of opportunity is closing and we must focus on the need to invest today to save tomorrow. Our fixed priority is delivering deep, rapid and sustained emission reductions now to keep temperatures under control and stay below 1.5°C, while leaving no one behind.


Enhance ambition and enable action

The COP29 Presidency’s plan is based on two mutually reinforcing parallel pillars. The first
pillar — to “enhance ambition” — combines key elements to ensure all parties commit to
ambitious national plans and transparency. The second pillar — to “enable action” —
reflects the critical role of finance, a key tool to turn ambition into action and reduce
emissions, adapt to climate change and address loss and damage
