13. Climate Action


Sustainable Development Goal 13 (SDG 13) is one of the 17 global goals established by the United Nations in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. SDG 13 focuses on "Climate Action" and addresses the urgent need to take significant steps to combat climate change and its impacts. The goal recognizes that climate change poses a severe threat to the well-being of the planet and its inhabitants, and it calls for coordinated global efforts to mitigate these risks.

Climate change is one of the most vital aspects to be concerned about as it affects ecosystems, economies, and communities across the globe. It has far-reaching consequences such as rising global temperatures, extreme weather events, sea-level rise, and disruptions to ecosystems. SDG 13 recognizes the interconnectedness of climate issues with other development goals and emphasizes the need for urgent and ambitious action to limit global warming and build resilience.
