Why it Matters

Climate change is already impacting public health, food and water security, migration, peace and security.  If it is left unchecked, it will roll back the development gains we have made over the past decades and will make further gains impossible.

Tackling climate change and fostering sustainable development are two mutually reinforcing tasks.  Investing in sustainable development will help address climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and building climate resilience, and action on climate change will help drive sustainable development.
