Please see below recent climate-related change, including key developments regarding the UN Sustainable Development Goal 13 - Climate Action.

Imagine a ship that is sinking and needs all the available power to run the pumps to drain out the rising waters. The first class passengers refuse to cooperate because they feel hot and want to use the air-conditioner and other electrical appliances. The second-class passengers spend all their time trying to be upgraded to first-class status. The boat sinks and the passengers all drown. That is where the present approach to climate change is leading - Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard

Our World in Data developed SDG-Tracker.org, the first (and it claims, only, to date) resource where we can track our collective progress towards the SDGs. It aims to provide a clear way to track global, regional and national progress across the 17 Goals, 169 Targets, and 232 Indicators of the SDGs. A recent update is now live in the tracker. Gaps in data availability remain: where there is no known data for a given indicator, OWID marks this clearly and invites users to notify them if there is data for these indicators that they may have missed. This open approach aims to support the UN in developing the most comprehensive coverage of how we're doing in our progress to 2030.

  • More than 1,800 migrants successfully made the journey in small boats across the English Channel to Britain in 2019, representing a six-fold increase over the previous year. The surge likely reflects the closing of several French migrant camps, as well as Europe's crackdown on the people smuggling trade, prompting migrants to embark on the precarious channel crossing.

  • Marking the Year of Return - the 400th anniversary of the beginning of the US slave trade - Ghana granted citizenship to 126 African Americans and Afro-Caribbeans in 2019 as part of an effort to encourage slaves' descendants to return. Three quarters of the West African slave "dungeons" that held slaves before their forced journey to the Americas were based in what is now Ghana.

Fundamental shifts in the world of work are eroding traditional social safety nets. Could a universal basic income (UBI) be the solution? UBI isn’t a new idea, according to the Basic Income Earth Network, which  says it was originally ignored, but growing fears surrounding job automation have stoked an interest in basic income.
