SDG 13 Climate Action
The SDG 13 is a universal and urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts by 2030. The goal, being adopted in 2015 is a follow-up of the partially achieved millennium goals.
Among others, the goal includes strengthening the resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters, the integration of climate change measures into national policies, and improved education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation. The creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve the SDG 13 in every context.
