Today, the rapidly developing global climate change is a major threat to our way of life. Responses to address climate change, both mitigation and adaptation, are linked to sustainable development. In this study, we first discuss the definition of sustainability, then four main areas impacted by climate change as well as the new goals of sustainable development are expounded. Finally, the relations between sustainable development and climate change are discussed.
