The SDG Climate Action Nexus tool (SCAN-tool) is designed to provide high-level guidance on how climate actions can impact achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SCAN-tool aims to be user-friendly and practical and it is meant to support policy makers across different departments and state levels, to achieve greater policy coherence and to improve the efficiency of implementation by providing them with an initial indication of which climate actions may impact -positively or negatively- specific SDG targets.
