The atmosphere, the envelope of gases surrounding Earth, plays a vital role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The health of our atmosphere is directly addressed by SDG 13 (Climate Action), which seeks to combat climate change and its impacts, largely driven by greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. It also ties to SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being), as air quality directly influences human health, and SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), which encourages improvements in urban air quality. The atmosphere also plays a crucial role in SDGs 14 and 15 (Life Below Water and Life on Land), as changes in atmospheric conditions can influence weather patterns and harm biodiversity. Hence, maintaining atmospheric health is indispensable for sustainable development.
