The 2030 Climate Solutions summarize what key actors must do to deliver the systems change needed by 2030 as pathways towards a global net-zero, resilient and nature positive world. They consolidate the practical steps to drive collaboration and cooperation, bringing stakeholders to work collectively together, and helping to spur action, activating radical collaboration, effective partnerships and positive ambition loops between the public and private sectors.

The 2030 Climate Solutions include, actionable and collaborative solutions for:
• Just energy and industry transition: decarbonizing power and heavy industry, tackling supply, demand, policy and investment, to ensure a just transition in all regions are top priorities to halve emissions by 2030. The 2030 Climate Solutions add new targets on electrification, methane reduction, energy accessibility, energy security, economic growth and resilience, coming from the Sharm-El-Sheikh Adaptation Agenda.
• Equitable financial flows: the finance solutions show practical ways for public and private finance to turn net zero and adaptation finance commitments into financial flows, especially in emerging markets to ensure a just transition, demonstrating that mitigation and adaptation projects and nature solutions are ripe for investment.
• Nature and inclusion: putting nature at the heart of climate solutions, emphasizing the importance of Indigenous People’s in leading that stewardship, these solutions include a full set of 2030 targets for nature-based solutions, spanning across land, ocean, agriculture, food and water, both for adaptation and mitigation purposes.
• Adaptation and resilience: tackling the climate crisis requires both adaptation and mitigation. To change the reality of insufficient adaptation action, planning and finance, the work has been focused on showcasing that investing in adaptation solutions is not only a moral imperative but also it is economically savvy; offering investment opportunities and benefits to biodiversity, health and improved livelihoods.
