Goal 13: Climate action

Every country in the world is seeing the drastic effects of climate change, some more than others. On average, the annual losses just from earthquakes, tsunamis, tropical cyclones and flooding count in the hundreds of billions of dollars. We can reduce the loss of life and  property by helping more vulnerable regions—such as land-locked  countries and island states—become more resilient. The impact of global warming is getting worse. We’re seeing more storms, more droughts and more extremes than ever before. It is still possible, with political will and technological measures, to limit the increase in global mean temperature to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels—and thus avoid the worst effects of climate change.
The Sustainable Development Goals lay out a way for countries to work together to meet this urgent challenge.
