Sustainable long-term growth that provides economies opportunities for everyone can only be achieved through a shift to higher value-added productive activities. This requires investment, the adoption of technological advancements, and a skilled workforce. To avoid further ecological degradation and climate change, this also calls for a shift to more efficient and less environmentally damaging economic activities.
Transforming to more sustainable consumption and production patterns, will not only be good for the economy, but also a necessity for the environment. This theme of Sustainable Development Goal Pulse looks at two aspects of structural transformation:
- We look for evidence of a shift towards Sustainable industrialization and higher technology and more skills-intensive economic activities, and
- We consider whether it is Make or break for green economy in the face of serious climate concerns.
According to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, to achieve the objectives of the The Paris Agreement is an agreement within the UNFCCC aiming is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further, to 1.5°C. It aims to strengthen countries’ ability to deal with the impacts of climate change. To reach these ambitious goals, appropriate financial flows, a new technology framework and an enhanced capacity building framework are intended to support developing countries, in line with their national objectives ., the world needs to deploy climate technologies on a much greater scale, and innovation plays a key role. The climate challenge is immediate, and as statistics in the SDG Pulse demonstrate, we can reduce Carbon intensity is the amount of emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) released per unit of another variable such as gross domestic product (GDP), output energy use or transport . of the economy through technological and economic transformation, but the challenge is urgent.
