Climate Change and UN Priorities

0 comments

When thinking of UN priorities I also think of the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) that have been adopted recently. There is a goal on climate change (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdg13) and one on health (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdg3), but unfortunately those are not really interlinked. Therefore these goals should be assessed in a more integrated way in order to find priorites that bring considerable relief in both respects.
Personally I also believe that ending hunger and malnutrition (as put forward in SDG2 (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdg2) is the backbone for making people more resistant against diseases. I see also a second backbone: the dissemination of information around infectious diseases and what is available for prevention.
