The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 13) ‘Climate Action’ calls for urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. It aims to limit global warming to well below 2°C – preferably to 1.5°C – compared with pre-industrial times. Moreover, countries’ resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters should be strengthened by integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation measures into national strategies, policies, and planning.
Monitoring SDG 13 in an EU context focuses on progress made in climate mitigation efforts, in reducing climate impacts and in supporting climate action.
