Habitat degradation and biodiversity loss are accelerating. Climate disruption is getting worse. Fires, floods, droughts and superstorms are more frequent and damaging. Oceans are heating and acidifying, destroying coral ecosystems, noted Guterres.

“And now, a new coronavirus is raging, undermining health and livelihoods. To care for humanity, we must care for nature,” he said. “As we work to build back better, let’s put nature where it belongs — at the heart of our decision-making.” (IANS)
