2030 is the target year to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, including “SDG13: Climate Action”. Without immediate actions to combat the climate crisis, we may have to face extreme weather, floods, droughts and sea-level rise by 2030, with dire consequences. The world’s top climate scientists have told us that limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require global net human-caused carbon emissions to fall by about 45% by 2030 from 2010 levels, reaching ‘net zero’ around 2050. This would require unprecedented, rapid and far-reaching transitions to reduce carbon footprint at the global, national and local levels. Malaysia continues to have its share of extreme weather events. These will be increasingly hard to manage in a global warming scenario, impacting the lives of many in diverse ways. Solving the climate change challenge is everyone’s business! This year, for the first time Malaysia’s perspective will be included in the “Solve Climate 2030”- a Global Dialogue involving about 100 webinars in 50 countries to discuss how state, community and individual actions can put us on the path to solving climate change by 2030?
