Global Sustainable Development

September 29, THU  /  12:30 - 14:00

In October 2021, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the goal of achieving carbon neutrality in Russia by 2060. The United Nations considers this to be an undeniable success and a global breakthrough.

The 26th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, in addition to representatives of the state, attracted a lot of attention from big business and leading financial institutions. The key issue was the sustainability and consistency of the green policy proposed by the states.

One of the most important global vectors of further development is the need to develop common long-term rules for attracting the private sector to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals and within them to achieve the parameters of the Paris Agreement on climate change.

The 26th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change proved that joint action among states, as well as the state, business, the financial sector and civil society, is critical to achieving the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

The government must offer a coherent vision of the scale of change needed to achieve a sustainable economy. If the government provides a clear statement of its intention to support the transition, investors can make long-term decisions. The government can provide investors with more clarity and greater awareness of the types of activities that will be supported, encouraging long-term investments and changes in pricing and capital allocation.

The discussion session will include the following questions:

  • Attainment by states of the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
  • Strategies for long-term successful development of states in the Middle East, Asia, and Latin America;
  • Plans for achieving carbon neutrality by states;
  • The role of country’s leadership during the current social, economic, and political turbulence;
  • Following the new course of the UN “Our Common Agenda,” development of the UN Development Goals beyond 2030.
