A changing planet: 4 places where climate change is taking its toll

 
In September, the United Nations will vote on 17 proposed Sustainable Development Goals for the world to strive for over the next 15 years.

The goals include taking unprecedented steps to halt climate change, guiding the policies that will change the world for the better by framing global agendas and guiding political action.

In the gallery below are four countries (Nepal, Namibia, Myanmar and the Maldives) where climate change has already started to affect everything from farming to flooding.

The UN will vote to finalize their Sustainable Development Goals this September at a special summit in New York.

Mashable’s sixth annual Social Good Summit, which will take place from Sept. 27 to 28 in New York, will bring together world leaders, grassroots activists and global citizens to discuss these goals, as well digital solutions to everything from climate change to healthcare.

Tickets to the Social Good Summit are now available. For more updates, including speaker announcements and ticket information, you can follow @MashableEvents on Twitter.
