Transformative Climate Action: from Observations to Science to Services
POLICY BRIEF

SDGs, Contributions of WMO Community

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in 2015, serves as the centrepiece for national and international policymaking over the next 15 years. It sets out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that the WMO community can contribute to at the national and international levels. WMO is the co-custodian of SDG 13 on Climate Action.

Ozone

Ozone is a form of oxygen with molecules carrying three atoms instead of two. Ozone is found both in the troposphere, the lower 10 km of the atmosphere, and in the stratosphere, 10 to 50 km above the ground. Ozone acts as a shield protecting us against harmful ultraviolet radiation from the Sun.
