There is great potential for policy coherence in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement. The NDC-SDG Connections Tool visualizes potential synergies between the SDGs and countries’ climate actions. This brief presents findings from a comprehensive data-driven analysis of more than 7000 climate activities extracted from 164 Nationally Determined Contributions (countries’ climate action plans) under the Paris Agreement.
