SDG 13 - Climate Action

SDG 13 - Climate Action

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

Climate change is a critical development challenge for the region. The key threats are sea level rise, saltwater intrusion of freshwater lenses and ocean acidification and their impact on people, water and food security, livelihoods, and the Pacific region’s biodiversity and culture. Climate induced mobility and migration across the region may be a required adaptation strategy.

Goal 13 indicators still require development for effective monitoring to take place.
