Within the project ClimEQ, conditions for policy coherence between climate change, reducing inequality and other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) when implemented nationally, are analysed.
The research partners look at six countries: Germany, Kenya, Philippines, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Sweden. Thus, IDOS researcher Alexia Faus Onbargi virtually participated on 19 May in a workshop in Manila, Philippines, organised by the University of the Philippines Law Center and Parabukas. She presented findings from a study on “The political drivers of policy (in)coherence in South Africa, Germany and the Philippines: a comparison”, in which she addressed some of the similar and some of the different institutional, ideological and interest-based barriers to policy coherence in all three countries. In a following discussion with participants from government and civil society, the study’s findings were reflected and verified. Moreover, participants jointly discussed policy recommendations which, together with other case studies results, will feed into various policy briefs and publications later this year.
About the project:
ClimEQ seeks to analyse conditions for policy coherence between climate change, reducing inequality and other SDGs when implemented nationally in six studied countries: Germany, Kenya, Philippines, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Sweden. To that end, it additionally aims to provide tools to identify synergies and to make trade-offs transparent between the two agendas.
