The Strategic Approach represents a unifying vision for collaborative UN action on climate change and serves as a driver and tool for the UN system to reinforce and operationalize the CEB Common Core Principles for a UN system-wide Approach to Climate Action; to encourage and guide integrated action in the areas of climate change and sustainable development; to identify and foster action in key impact areas; and to ensure coherent and, where possible, joint approaches to the UN’s country-level work on climate change.
