Description of SDG-13: Climate Action

The causes and impacts of man-made climate change and global warming are all around us, across the globe and in every aspect of our planetary habitat and its natural systems. Universities have a critical role to play in preparing society to adapt to the impacts of climate disruption not only by providing research and education related to adaptation strategies but also by sensitizing their students and making changes in their infrastructure, design and practices to demonstrate their commitment to the mission

LCWU being a leading women university of the country is fully aware of the need to design programs and policies in support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal on Climate Action and it is continuously trying to increase its capacity to implement the climate action plan.
