SDG 4

 

 

Goal 4 - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

None of the targets under SDG 4 are directly affected by climate mitigation, but there are many important indirect relationships.
Targets to be of indirect relevance for Austria in the context of meetPASS:
4.1 By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and effective learning outcomes
4.2 By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education

Integrating climate change measures into national policies, strategies and planning (SDG 13.2) could affect the achievment of SDG 4 or vice versa.
Possible relationships between these two SDGs are given below.
