If you have any queries about any of the SDGs, here is an explanation:
SDG 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture. It seeks to ensure that all people enjoy a healthy and nutritious diet all year round, eradicating malnutrition and combating poor diets, which are at the root of many diseases. This involves guaranteeing the sustainability of food production systems, implementing sustainable agricultural practices, ensuring well-functioning markets for food commodities and their derivatives, and fostering new sustainable, healthy and fair agri-food models worldwide.
SDG 4: Ensure inclusive, equitable and quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. It seeks to provide all people with access to education, training and the full development of their potential. This implies ensuring access to early childhood care and development services and quality pre-school education, and ensuring that all people complete primary and secondary education, which should be free, equitable and of good quality, and have access to quality technical, vocational and higher education, including university education. It is also necessary to ensure that all students acquire the necessary skills to foster sustainable development, such as human rights, gender equality, the promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, and the adoption of healthy lifestyles.
SDG 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its effects. This SDG urges us to take action to combat climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions in line with what is being set out in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This implies integrating actions against climate change into all public policies, implementing measures to adapt to the effects of climate change, developing prevention and action plans for extreme phenomena, and intensively educating citizens to act accordingly and learn to protect themselves autonomously in critical situations. No country can remain on the sidelines of this major environmental challenge that humanity must address in the 21st century.
