The strategic engagement of state and non-state actors and cooperative initiatives can create synergies between multiple political processes that address climate change and sustainable development, for instance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the High Level Political Forum, UNFCCC, the New Urban Agenda, G20, and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA). However, such engagements need to involve stakeholders across developed and developing countries to deliver equitable results. Integrated and inclusive implementation is especially crucial for sustainable development in developing countries as they are particularly vulnerable. Against this background, the Interconnections conference (12-13 May 2017, Bonn) will convene leading scholars, leading experts, and policy makers from relevant fields to exchange ideas and to build bridges between sustainable development and climate change.
