Moving towards the path of sustainable development is a great challenge. The Paris Agreement, the UN´s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the delivery of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (iNDCs) by 197 parties to the UN Climate Convention all require a shouldering of responsibility for addressing climate change and improving human welfare. If temperature rise is to be kept to well below 2°C by the end of this century, the time to act in now.
To ensure that by 2050, Latin America and the Caribbean will be a region that produces food securely and sustainably; with unrivaled biodiversity and highly valued natural capital; with sustainable cities designed for citizens; and economies, infrastructure and communities that are resilient to climate impacts and natural disasters, we must effectively plan and implement both policies and investments.
Acknowledging the urgent need to act the IDB Group is announcing during an event to commemorate the launch by the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate” of its study “The Sustainable Infrastructure Imperative,” one-stop shop called NDC Invest, which aims to help countries transform their climate commitments into investment plans.
