Climate change is hitting developing countries the hardest, even though they have contributed the least to its causes. Droughts, floods, rising sea levels and extreme weather disasters are causing food shortages, destroying homes and claiming lives in some of the poorest places in the world.
This goal is about making sure developing countries get the help they urgently need to adapt to our changing climate. But it’s also about all of us doing more to tackle climate change. Every country needs to work through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and keep their climate promises.
Our planet’s ability to sustain life is incredible, and if we act now, we can protect it for future generations.
