Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development in sub-Saharan Africa

Time: 09:00 EDT; 13:00 GMT; 15:00 SAST
Duration: 90 minutes
 
Register here.
 
Overview
Cross-sectoral approaches to policy development are essential to meeting the Paris Agreement on climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which define the post-2015 development agenda. Coherent policy development requires strategic, logical assessment of interlinkages, trade-offs and opportunities within and across sectors and over spatial and temporal scales. However, for many countries realising policy coherence is challenging.
 
In this webinar, we’ll share new analysis of differing degrees of policy coherence to achieve sustainable development in the water, energy and food (agriculture) sectors, including meeting the Paris Agreement on climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Findings and recommendations will be illustrated with case studies of policy coherence for Tanzania, and Malawi, and local experience from Zambia in addressing this challenge.
