Take immediate action to combat climate change and its impacts

Goal 13: Climate action

SDG 13 is divided into several sub-goals. It provides for strengthening resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards (13.1), mainstreaming climate action into national policies and strategies (13.2), and improving human and institutional capacities in the field of climate change mitigation and adaptation (13.3).

Internationally, this is to be achieved by jointly mobilising 100 billion US dollars annually by 2020 from private and public sources to support developing countries (13.a), as well as promoting planning and management capacities in the least developed countries (13.b).
