Implementation of Sustainable Development Goals Through the Equimarginal Principle and Circular Economy

Konuralp Pamukçu

Limiting global warming to 1.5o Celsius is the goal set by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for avoiding catastrophic and irreversible consequences. Time is running out quickly for humanity to reach this 1.5o Celsius goal and efficiently mitigate and adapt to the negative impacts of climate change. Climate stabilization policies and actions will determine global economic, social, political, and ecological health in the next decade. This paper analyzes the economic and environmental consequences of public policy choices related to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13, Climate Action. The analysis examines how SDG 13 could be implemented more rapidly and effectively through the Equimarginal Principle and based on the principle of Common But Differentiated Responsibilities and Respective Capabilities (CBDR-RC). The paper also discusses how transitioning to a circular economy could play a significant role in achieving the SDG 13 and the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

Sűrdűrűlebilir Kalkınma Hedefleri’nin Marjinal Hakkaniyet Prensibi ve Sirkűler Ekonomi ile Gerçekleştirilmesi

Konuralp Pamukçu

Hűkűmetlerarası İklim Değişikliği Paneli, geri dönűşű olmayan felaketlere yol açmaması için, kűresel ısınmayı 1,5o Santigrad ile sınırlı tutmak hedefini belirlemiştir. 1,5o Santigrad hedefine erişmek, iklim değişikliğinin olumsuz etkilerini en aza indirebilmek ve adaptasyonu sağlayabilmek için, insanlığın fazla bir zamanı kalmamıştır. Őnűműzdeki on yılın kűresel ekonomik, sosyal, siyasal ve ekolojik koşullarını, devletlerin bugűnkű iklim politikaları ve uygulamaları şekillendirecektir. Bu makale, Birleşmiş Milletler Sűrdűrűlebilir Kalkınma Hedefleri içinde yer alan İklim Politika ve Uygulamalarına (Hedef 13) yönelik adımların ekonomik ve çevresel sonuçlarını irdelemektedir. Makale, marjinal hakkaniyet adlı ekonomi prensibi ve uluslararası iklim anlaşmalarında benimsenmiş olan űlkelerin Ortak Fakat Farklılandırılmış Sorumlulukları ve Göreceli Kapasiteleri Prensipleri çerçevesinde, Hedef 13’e daha etkili ve hızlı bir biçimde ulaşılabileceğini öngörmektedir. Makale ayrıca, sirkűler ekonomiye geçişin, Hedef 13 ve Paris İklim Anlaşması’nın gayelerine erişilebilmesinde nasıl etkili bir rol oynayacağını tartışmaktadır.
