Which SDGs contribute most to adaptation?

The following matrix is the result of an evaluation by experts in #adaptation, on 2 questions: Which SDG indicators are more sensitive to climate change? Which SDG indicators contribute the most to generating #resilience?

The SDGs that have a higher rating and therefore are more sensitive and contribute more to building resilience are, as expected, SDG 1: No Poverty, SDG 2: Zero Hunger, SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation, SDG 12: Responsible production and consumption, SDG 13: Climate action and SDG 15: Life of terrestrial ecosystems.

There are some items for discussion:

What professional profiles participate in the sample?

The way in which the indicators are formulated, for example in the health issue, is there only one indicator that is very sensitive and contributes to resilience that is related to vector-borne diseases?

This type of evaluation can help us explore the synergies between the SDG agenda and the climate change agenda, help the implementation of SDG 13 and the synergy with other SDGs.

We appreciate your comments and also if you want to help us consolidate this matrix with more assessments by experts in adaptation to climate change.
