Agenda Coherence from a DRM Persepctive
Agenda coherence can be described as jointly strengthening resilience through implementing the post-2015 agendas. Processes such as mainstreaming, localisation, harmonisation, integration and alignment can all play a role in this. However, due to the different priorities and the autonomous nature of the individual agendas, integration will always be partial. At present, the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement carry the greatest political weight; the latter is equipped with significantly larger financial resources for implementation. The Sendai Framework and the New Urban Agenda have considerably less political significance. Each agenda sets its own political and financial priorities geared to the visibility of specific issues and the interests of UN organisations.
In sum, agenda coherence stands for the appropriate, concerted approach of government actors on all levels and in all sectors for implementing the global post-2015 agendas in order to achieve their goals more effectively and efficiently.
