The UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in a report released on Thursday, has warned that insufficient action towards climate goals was slowing down the global fight against poverty, hunger, and other threatening diseases.

According to the report, the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned in his message that record temperatures and extreme weather were “causing havoc” across the globe.

The UN chief insisted that the response from the global community was not satisfactory, adding that as showed by the latest UN data, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were only 15 percent on track ahead of the 2030 Agenda.

According to a Geneva-based agency, WMO, the current policies would lead to global warming of at least 2.8 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels during the currency century, which was far ahead the Paris Agreement target of 1.5°C.
