Webinar: "Funding SDG Impacts: Gold Standard for the Global Goals"


This webinar introduces Gold Standard for the Global Goals, a new standard to quantify and verify impacts toward climate security and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Organisations with SDG priorities or commitments can learn how the standard ensures maximum return on impact investment through benefits that include:

  • Climate impacts by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) and deforestation
  • Health benefits
  • Gender equality
  • Poverty alleviation
  • New jobs and economic growth
  • Energy access

The webinar features a case study on distribution of clean cooking and heating technologies to demonstrate how a climate and development intervention can deliver multiple SDG impacts and calculate the collective economic value associated with those impacts. Participants also learn about innovative finance mechanisms that can be used to fund these impacts.
