Why biodiversity is vital for sustainable development
People and Nature is calling on the UK government to:
1. Make all UK Aid nature-positive, supporting more integrated interventions that improve people’s lives and enhance the natural environment.
2. Stop harmful investments that destroy nature and contribute to climate change, such as investing in fossil fuels, deforestation, conversion and exploitation of carbon- and nature-rich ecosystems.
3. Negotiate an ambitious deal for people and nature at the Convention on Biological Diversity’s meeting in October 2020 that is integrated with the 2030 development agenda and the Paris Agreement.
