10 Feb 2020 Habari Ecosystems and Biodiversity

2020 is a super year for nature and biodiversity

Nature-based solutions offer the best way to achieve human well-being, tackle climate change and protect our living planet. Yet nature is in crisis, as we are losing species at a rate 1,000 times greater than at any other time in recorded human history and one million species face extinction. In addition to important moments for decision makers, including the COP 15 on Biodiversity, the 2020 “super year” is a major opportunity to bring nature back from the brink.

All year we'll be highlighting updates from around the United Nations System, from partners and from others helping to to call attention to the fact that the future of humanity depends on action now.
