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.
