The Open Working Group (OWG)’s proposal for the sustainable development goals (SDGs), to be presented to the United Nations General Assembly at the end of September 2014, features climate change as a goal and also recognises climate change impacts in some of the targets under other goals. Over the next year of inter-governmental negotiations, there is an opportunity to further refinement of the goals. The Climate & Development Knowledge Network held national dialogues in Colombia, Kenya and Indonesia to facilitate an exchange of views among stakeholders from across government, civil society, academia and the private sector on how best to include climate change in the SDGs in a way that encourages climate compatible development. This paper highlights key concerns and principles that emerged in the three consultative events, and ways that these principles could be implemented in practice.
