The IPCC concludes in the AR6 that effective and equitable climate policies support climate resilience, sustainable development, and poverty eradication, essentially linking the Sustainable Development Goals agenda with Climate Change. The AR6 also introduces Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs), based on socioeconomic models of population, urban density, land use, education, health, and wealth. The SSPs promote a paradigm shift by governments and communities for more sustainable practices promoting social services, health and wellbeing, and education over economic growth.
