Expert Group Meeting on Climate Change & Sustainable Development: The Role of Indicators

New York
15 - 16 October, 2008

Climate change is a sustainable development issue, impacting on and impacted by a wide range of economic, social and environmental factors and policies. On the one hand, climate change impacts could erase the progress made in achieving the goals of sustainable development. On the other, controlling greenhouse gas emissions will depend ultimately on underlying economic and technological development pathways. However, despite this general agreement it remains often unclear how to ensure that climate change adaptation and mitigation are indeed considered in the framework of sustainable development. Linking quantitative information on climate change mitigation and adaptation to sustainable development information systems is a means to make the fact ┐climate change is a sustainable development issue┐ relevant in practice.
