Demographic changes, over consumption, and the use of technologies that damage the environment, combined with climate change, are pushing our planet to its limits. Biodiversity and healthy ecosystems are essential for improving and sustaining human wellbeing. The biodiversity losses we are now witnessing is diminishing the potential for sustainable development and undermining the very foundations of life on Earth. This is the challenge that over 1.2 billion people globally, live in severe poverty and depend directly on the biodiversity and ecosystem services to survive for food, clean water, fuel, medicine, shelter, and to buffer natural disasters intensified by Climate change.
