Bigger change faster: integrated development, health and environment actions for a sustainable future

The report examines three large-scale sustainable development challenges for which cross-sector solutions are essential to accelerate and maximize progress towards the SDGs, the Paris Agreement, and other global commitments. These are (1) accelerating a low-carbon, clean air, and environmentally-friendly energy future for all; (2) transforming the global food system for health and sustainability and (3) targeting sanitation and wastewater improvements to benefit people and nature. The report is unique in its focus on achieving multiple benefits that do not miss key drivers or hinder progress on other development goals. It highlights that adopting a broader view and scaling up implementation of effective cross-sector actions to address these challenges can drive holistic progress across the SDGs.
