SDG 13: Greenhouse Gases

The urgency to combat climate change and its effects has never been more pressing. The United Nations predicts that medium to large scale disasters will increase by 40%, with drought estimated to displace approximately 700 million people, all by the year 2030. Therefore the goal of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13 is to ‘Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts’.

A large contributor to the negative impacts of climate change is Greenhouse Gases, and as the window of opportunity to mitigate these climate disasters closes in, pioneering research into the topic is of vital importance. Here you can find the best and latest research into Greenhouse Gases, featuring groundbreaking research articles, along with insightful blog posts.
