SDG 13 Climate action

SDG13 climate action

The climate crisis persists as the world hesitates to make the necessary commitment for its reversal. The past decade (2010-2019) was the hottest ever, resulting in extensive wildfires, hurricanes, droughts, floods, and other climate-related disasters worldwide. Climate change is disrupting economies and impacting vulnerable lives and livelihoods.

Griffith University is aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and committed to tackling global challenges around SDG 13 climate action. Below are some of our outputs supporting this goal.
