Inclusive national policies in the face of climate change

With Sustainable Development Goal 13 (climate action), the global community affirmed its commitment to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impact. However, its is paramount in this process that the unequal distribution of these negative impacts is addressed.

During a side-event in New York, we were joined by Willy Missack from Vanuatu – where the consequences of the climate crisis are already felt on a daily basis – to share experiences for implementing inclusive national plans to combat climate change.

This side-event was co-sponsored by the Permanent Missions of Ecuador and Fiji, as well as by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
