Knowledge-Exchange Webinar Series 3

Assessing and Reporting Climate and Sustainable Development Impacts of Mitigation Actions and Policies under the Paris Agreement

3 February 2022, 17:00-18:15 (JST)

Policies and projects promoting sustainable development include the use of safeguards to avoid negative impacts, can increase stakeholder support and public acceptance, increase market value and raise ambition on climate action. The growing awareness of integrated solutions is related to development of new SDG assessment tools to help identify how projects and policies can maximise benefits, as well as avoid or mitigate negative impacts.

On 3 February, a webinar co-organised by IGES, the Asian Development Bank and UNEP DTU Partnership provided policymakers and stakeholders with an introduction to existing and new SDG assessment tools at the project level in Asia.

The webinar is part of a knowledge-exchange webinar series jointly organized by the Asian Development Bank, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies, and the UNEP-DTU Partnership.
