Good day to everybody, everywhere.
I am pleased to join the launch of this important report from the United Nations Environment Programme on Making Peace with Nature.
I want to be clear. Without nature’s help, we will not thrive or even survive.
For too long, we have been waging a senseless and suicidal war on nature.
The result is three interlinked environmental crises.
Climate disruption, biodiversity loss and pollution that threaten our viability as a species.
They are caused by unsustainable production and consumption.
