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.

Target 13.1

Strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters in all countries

Target 13.2

Integrate climate change measures into national policies, strategies and planning

Target 13.3

Improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning

Target 13.a

Implement the commitment undertaken by developed-country parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to a goal of mobilizing jointly $100 billion annually by 2020 from all sources to address the needs of developing countries in the context of meaningful mitigation actions and transparency on implementation and fully operationalize the Green Climate Fund through its capitalization as soon as possible

Target 13.b

Promote mechanisms for raising capacity for effective climate change-related planning and management in least developed countries and small island developing States, including focusing on women, youth and local and marginalized communities
