The following items explain and summarize the main objectives and critical points of the "Climate Action" goal. Implementing these objectives aims to lead the world towards a more sustainable future by taking significant steps in combating climate change.

  1. Combating the impacts of climate change: Strategies for resilience, adaptation, and prevention are developed to cope with the negative effects of climate change. Protective measures are taken, especially in regions most affected by climate change and for vulnerable groups.

  2. Conservation of forests and ecosystems: Destructive effects on forests and other ecosystems are reduced, and initiatives for afforestation and rehabilitation are promoted. Preserving biodiversity is a primary goal.

  3. Sustainable agriculture and irrigation: Support for sustainable agricultural practices, development of productivity-enhancing irrigation systems, and efficient water use in agricultural production are managed.

  4. Climate finance and technology transfer: Encouragement for financing and technology transfer related to climate change is aimed at developing countries.

  5. Social awareness and education: Raising awareness of climate change in society and organizing educational and awareness activities are targeted.

  6. Climate-related policies and planning: Supporting the development and implementation of effective policies and planning to combat climate change.

  7. Energy efficiency: Promoting energy efficiency, reducing energy consumption, and encouraging the use of clean energy sources.

  8. Sustainable transportation: Aiming to develop and increase the use of low-carbon transportation systems.

  9. Climate-related research and innovation: Supporting and encouraging research and innovation efforts related to climate change.

Climate change poses serious threats to global ecosystems and humanity. However, with appropriate policies, technological innovations, and universal cooperation, significant progress can be made in the fight against climate change. Achieving this goal relies on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, enhancing climate adaptation and resilience, and supporting the use of renewable energy.
