Pledges to Combat Climate Change

The United Nations Pledges To shine a light on risk informed national, regional and local development in the face of climate change. Recognising that climate change impacts, such as rising sea levels, changing weather patterns and more extreme weather events, can and do place the health and wellbeing of people at risk, the UN undertakes to strengthen national capacity in mainstreaming Disaster Risk Management in key sectors and build resilience of sustainable livelihoods against disasters, especially focusing on agricultural communities towards securing livelihoods and ultimately achieving national food security.
