High-Level Political Forum 2024

The triple planetary crisis has halted, slowed or reversed the progress of sustainable development. IUCN has drawn particular attention to the interlinked crises of climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution in recent years. Unless addressed in a comprehensive, synergetic, ambitious and timely manner, these twin interlinked long-term crises threaten to undermine the achievement of the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda.

The High-Level Political Forum 2024 needs to be a moment to follow up on the commitment from the 2023 SDG Summit to ensure the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources. The declaration should make a strong case for urgent action on the triple planetary crisis through a rights-based approach. The Ministerial Declaration to be adopted at the Forum should focus on synergies between the SDGs and prioritize policies and investments that have multiplier effects across the Sustainable Development Goals.

Nature-based Solutions (NbS) should be recognized as playing a critical and supportive role to address today’s environmental crisis, while simultaneously addressing other societal challenges.

This brief outlines IUCN's key messages for this important meeting.
