The climate crisis is a complex, multi-faceted challenge. There are countless intersections between climate change and a range of other issues such as poverty, hunger, equality, employment, and sustainable land and water. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a useful framework for unpacking these linkages.
This two-part series explores the interconnections between SDG 13: Climate Action and other goals, through 10 articles by diverse community changemakers across Canada.
