Goal 13: Climate action

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

WMO is the co-custodian of Goal 13 on climate action. The WMO community's challenge is to provide decision-makers with the scientific facts and analyses they need to adapt to climate change impacts and build climate resilience. WMO is firmly committed to supporting the Paris Agreement on climate change and to help guide valuable emission-reduction actions as per "nationally determined contributions." In addition to hosting the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the World Climate Research Programme and the Global Climate Observing System, WMO is promoting international action and cooperation on climate change by establishing Regional Climate Centres and Regional Climate Outlook Forums.
