SDG 13: Climate Action

What’s the goal here?

Taking urgent action to tackle climate change and its impacts.


As greenhouse gas levels continue to climb, climate change is occurring at much higher rates than anticipated, and its effects are evident worldwide. By addressing climate change, we can build a sustain-able world for everyone. But we need to act now.

Are people’s lives really being affected by climate change?

Yes. Severe weather and rising sea levels are affecting people and their property in developed and developing countries. From a small farmer in the Philippines to a businessman in London, climate change is affecting everyone, especially the poor and vulnerable, as well as marginalized groups like women, children, and the elderly.

What can I do to help achieve this goal? There are many things that each of us can do as individuals.
