How can we build upon the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement to promote an ecological and energetic transition that leaves no one behind? Climate impacts are a multiplier of inequalities, which in turn affect access to natural resources. Approaching environmental issues from the angle of inequality to promote fair, sustainable uses of natural resources helps to address the root causes of environmental degradation and builds resilience. Agriculture, rural livelihoods and employment are key areas where sound environmental approaches and poverty alleviation can mutually benefit each other. Participants will bring forward concrete and innovative solutions for climate and biodiversity, as well as social and environmental justice, with a special focus on rural areas.
