WMO: Climate Change Undermines Sustainable Development Goals

SHAFAQNA- According to a new report coordinated by multiple agencies of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), climate change is undermining nearly all of the Sustainable Development Goals.

According to Reliefweb, only 15% of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are on track, according to a United in Science report that systematically examined the impact of climate change and extreme weather events on the goals. . It shows how weather, climate, and water science can advance goals such as food and water security, clean energy, improved health, sustainable oceans, and resilient cities.

“The year 2023 has shown too clearly that climate change is coming. Record temperatures are scorching the land and warming the seas, as extreme weather wreaks havoc across the globe. While we know this is just the beginning, the global response is far from adequate. Meanwhile, halfway to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) deadline, the world is behind schedule,” said UN’s Secretary General António Guterres.

“Science is at the heart of solutions. It is widely accepted that weather, climate and water science provides the foundation for climate action. But little is known about how these sciences can accelerate progress towards the SDGs at every level,” Mr. Guterres wrote in the foreword. “At this critical moment in history, halfway towards achieving the SDGs, the scientific community remains united in our efforts to ensure the well-being of people and the planet,” said the Secretary-General of the WMO, Professor Petteri Taalas said.
