Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

13 - Climate action

People are already experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, including changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is projected to rise over the 21st century and is likely to surpass three degrees Celsius this century. This will further increase the severity of climate change impacts, which disproportionately affects the poor and most vulnerable.

By supporting high quality carbon finance projects, businesses can deliver essential emission reductions and support low carbon sustainable development in areas most in need.

Example carbon finance project activities that aim to address climate change and its impacts:
  • Support communities to build capacity and resilience, strengthening their ability to adapt to the impacts of climate change e.g. crop diversification, fire suppression (Target 13.1)
  • Encourage tree planting activity to improve local ecosystem services e.g. enhance soil fertility, protect crops from scorching, reduce threat of flooding through water storage (Target 13.1)
  • Enhance the capacity for communities in less economically developed countries – women, youth and the marginalised – to understand the impacts of climate change, to manage its impacts, and develop sustainable livelihoods that will allow communities to thrive for the long-term (Target 13.3)
  • Establish agreements with community councils to improve local management of fisheries (Targets 14.2 and 14.4) 
     

Projects that align with SDG 13: Climate action

The premise of all carbon finance projects is to direct funds to the most effective global projects to deliver emission reductions and sustainable development outcomes to help combat climate change and promote a sustainable and equitable future for all.
