Non-linear interlinkages and key objectives amongst the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals

  journal={arXiv: Econometrics},
The United Nations' ambitions to combat climate change and prosper human development are manifested in the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), respectively. These are inherently inter-linked as progress towards some of these objectives may accelerate or hinder progress towards others. We investigate how these two agendas influence each other by defining networks of 18 nodes, consisting of the 17 SDGs and climate change, for various groupings of countries. We compute a…

Addressing climate goals and the SDGs through a just energy transition? Empirical evidence from Germany and South Africa

ABSTRACT In striving to achieve the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda, governments have the opportunity to implement their climate and sustainability goals more coherently. Such coherence requires

Building a unified sustainable development goal database: Why does sustainable development goal data selection matter?

The 2020s are an essential decade for achieving the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For this, SDG research needs to provide evidence that can be translated into concrete



Income-based variation in Sustainable Development Goal interaction networks

The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are set to change the way we live, and aim to create, by 2030, a sustainable future balancing equitable prosperity within planetary

An imperfect vision of indivisibility in the Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are presented as highly connected: an ‘interrelated’ and ‘indivisible’ agenda with a need for policy coherence for implementation. We analyse the

The Inequality of Climate Change From 1.5 to 2°C of Global Warming

The Paris Agreement aims to keep global warming well below 2°C above preindustrial levels with a preferred ambitious 1.5°C target. Developing countries, especially small island nations, pressed for

Solar energy development impacts on land cover change and protected areas

This study assessed siting impacts of utility-scale solar energy (USSE) installations by technology type, area, and capacity within the global solar hot spot of the state of California, and used the Carnegie Energy and Environmental Compatibility model, a multiple criteria model, to quantify each installation according to environmental and technical compatibility.

Partial Distance Correlation with Methods for Dissimilarities

This work defines the partial distance correlation statistics with the help of a new Hilbert space where the squared distance covariance is the inner product, and develops and implements a test for zero partialdistance correlation.

Measuring and testing dependence by correlation of distances

Distance correlation is a new measure of dependence between random vectors that is based on certain Euclidean distances between sample elements rather than sample moments, yet has a compact representation analogous to the classical covariance and correlation.
