Why is tackling climate change vital to peace?

In partnership with EIU, we’ve developed an infographic and an accompanying video explaining how climate change impacts hunger and food security (SDG 2), decent work and economic growth (SDG 8), inequalities (SDG 10), and sustainable communities and cities (SDG 11). The infographic and videos explain how progress towards achieving the UN SDGs helps tackling climate change and is, therefore, vital to peace and building resilient societies.
