Restore Balance with Nature campaign is underway
For centuries, we have used nature to live. As results:
- Nearly one million species are at risk of extinction.
- Nearly three quarters of the Earth's ice-free land has been transformed to meet human demands for food, raw materials, and homes.
- If humans continue to emit greenhouse gases at current rates, global temperature will rise more than 1.5 degrees Celsius target within decades.
Today, we need nature to survive. Protecting and restoring nature can help drive a green recovery and prevent future pandemics. Investing in nature-based solutions will allow us to build forward better, greener, healthier, stronger, and more sustainably.
The three Rio Conventions on biodiversity, land and climate are joining forces to ensure that each and every one of us takes action in their own environment in order to change the course of the world to restore balance with nature.
