Protection of Global Climate for Present and Future Generations of Humankind

As it has caught the focus of the entire human race in the past few decades, climate change has become a primary agenda for the global community. A report published by the World Meteorological Organization confirms that the carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere has reached a level that has not been seen in 3 to 5 million years. The topic Protection of global climate for present and future generations of humankind is mostly addressed by the goal No.13 Climate Action out of the 17 sustainable development goals. As part of the goals for the National Sustainable Development Strategies (NSDS) which is “a coordinated, participatory and iterative process of thoughts and actions to achieve economic environmental and social objectives in a balanced and integrative manner”, its  purpose is for nations to best approach the preparation and implementation of its national sustainable development strategy under the prevailing political, historical cultural, ecological circumstances. As mentioned under Goal 13.3, nations need to achieve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change and strengthen national institution, systems and individual capacity-building to implement adaptation, mitigation and technology transfer and development actions. Throughout the conference, the General Assembly will seek to make these ambitious goals a reality.
