Climate change affects every living being and every country on Earth. Temperature increase, sea level rise, droughts, floods, extreme weather events, and habitat change are concrete threats to our planet. Inaction on climate change will inevitably lead to an increase in economic, social and human losses in the coming years. Achieving this objective requires bold action to implement meaningful policies at all levels of governance, to strengthen resilience, adaptation and mitigation efforts, and to build knowledge in order to reduce risks related to climate change.
