The world’s complex web of biological diversity sustains all life on earth. Yet it is unravelling at alarming speed – and humanity is to blame.

We are contaminating land, oceans, and freshwater with toxic pollution, wrecking landscapes and ecosystems, and disrupting our precious climate with greenhouse gas emissions. Decimating biodiversity damages sustainable development today, and creates a dangerous and uncertain tomorrow.

The Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework offers a pathway to reverse loss and restore biodiversity – while creating jobs, building resilience, and spurring sustainable development.

Governments must lead. But as this year’s International Day for Biological Diversity reminds us, we are all “Part of the Plan” – we all have a role to play. Indigenous Peoples, business, financial institutions, local and regional authorities, civil society, women, young people, and academia must work together to value, protect and restore biodiversity in a way that benefits everyone.

As we mark this Day for Biological Diversity, let us commit to be Part of the Plan. Let us act urgently to put biodiversity on a path to recovery. And let us build ambition to CBD COP16 in October to protect the planet and create a more sustainable future for us all.

Biodiversity. . ."Food for Thought"

If the Citizens of Humanity Around the World - who

respect the whole of Earth and its abundance of

healthy biodiversity are NOT the ones

contaminating Earth's land, oceans, and freshwater

with toxic pollution, wrecking landscapes and

ecosystems, and disrupting our precious

climate with greenhouse gas emissions . . .

On the International Day for Biological Diversity, we reflect on our relationship with humanity’s life-support system.

From the air we breathe and the food we eat, to the energy that fuels us and the medicines that heal us, our lives are wholly dependent on healthy ecosystems.

Yet our actions are devastating every corner of the planet.

One million species are at risk of extinction -- the result of habitat degradation, skyrocketing pollution, and the worsening climate crisis.

We must end this war on nature.

Last year’s agreement on the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework marked an important step – but now is the time to move from agreement to action.

This means ensuring sustainable production and consumption patterns.

Redirecting subsidies from nature-destroying activities towards green solutions.

Recognizing the rights of Indigenous peoples and local communities, the strongest guardians of our world’s biodiversity.

And pushing governments and businesses to take stronger and faster action against biodiversity loss and the climate crisis.

Let us work together across governments, civil society, and the private sector to secure a sustainable future for all.
