SDG 13: Climate Action
Target 13.1: Strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters in all countries.
Target 13.3: Improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning.
We recognize that no nation can achieve sustainable peace without managing the environment. Our Green Print Project aims at reducing the Carbon Print as a response to the myriad of environmental concerns. These issues include air pollution, climate change and global warming, sustainable energy, land degradation (land pollution, desertification, and deforestation), soil erosion and conservation, over-exploitation of natural resources, and poor waste management. These issues are serious and if not addressed, will have devastating implications for present and future generations.
