Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Climate change does not stop, and continues to disrupt economies, balances and lives. We are facing meteorological upheavals, we are facing a worrying rise of sea levels, natural disasters are increasingly widespread.
From 1901 to 2010, the global average sea level rose by 19 cm. The global average temperature increased by 0.85° C between 1880 and 2012. Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have increased by nearly 50% since 1990. The decade 2010-2019 was the warmest ever recorded (Source United Nations).
Is still possible take action to limit the effects of climate change. One of the goals identified to contribute to the challenge of this Sustainable Development Goal is to have local governments adopt national disaster risk reduction strategies.
