Climate change presents the single biggest threat to development, and its widespread, unprecedented impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable. The UN Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform stresses that “urgent action to combat climate change and minimize its disruptions is integral to the successful implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals”. Read more about Goal 13.
