“The health of ecosystems on which we and all other species depend is
deteriorating more rapidly than ever. We are eroding the very foundations of
our economies, livelihoods, food security, health and quality of life worldwide,”
said IPBES Chair, Sir Robert Watson. He comments the new Global Assessment
Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services from the Intergovernmental
Science Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).
The report states changes over the past five decades and the
relationships between economic development pathways and their impacts on nature assessed by 145 expert authors and 310 contributing authors from 50 countries over the past three years.
Striking are the results that 1,000,000 species are threatened with
extinction and nature is declining globally at rates unprecedented in human
history. The report indicates that a difference can still be made but only if
started now, and at every level from local to global. Currently, global
responses are insufficient and “transformative changes” are needed to restore
and protect nature. “Transformative changes”, as IPBES states, include a fundamental, system-wide reorganization across technological, economic and social factors.
