Getting to Zero: A Poverty, Environment and Climate Call to Action for the Sustainable Development Goals
The Poverty Environment Partnership joint paper, “Getting to Zero”, calls for the mainstreaming of poverty, environment and climate issues at the heart of efforts to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The paper proposes a “triple vision” of zero extreme poverty, zero net climate emissions, and zero net loss of natural assets, which can be achieved through
- increased empowerment and rights for women and men suffering extreme poverty,
- developing integrated, inclusive and transformative institutions,
- inclusive finance and business, and
- improving and aligning poverty, environment and climate messages, narratives and metrics to galvanize and measure progress toward achieving the SDGs.
