Climate change is affecting countries all around the world, with some countries more vulnerable to the impacts than others. There are of course challenges with global cooperation on issues such as climate change, but progress has been made over the years on international agreements and plans.
In 2015, the United Nations led the creation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals which outline a universal plan called “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. All 193 member states of the United Nations, including New Zealand signed up to help achieve these Goals. It’s a global agreement to make the world a better place for all.
Our mahi around climate change can respond to and influence action on many of these Goals.
