“This pandemic is the outcome of our broken relationship with nature and the disruptions that we’ve caused in our ecological balance. I think what I would hope for is that more people recognise this interconnection and the fact that our lives, our health, our progress is not separate from the health of the environment and nature,” said Dia.

“And that the only way we can actually hope to achieve the Sustainable Developments Goals, is by protecting and conserving and securing biodiversity and that’s fundamental to everything that we hope to achieve,” she added.

She feels that we have the solutions, technology, the science that is evidencing the solutions to all our problems, helping us understand our problems better.

“And this I think is an extraordinary time for us to take cognisance of this fact, understand it, educate ourselves and will ourselves to do better. Because every time I see the glaring inequalities that we have experienced, specially during this time, I don’t think it’s ever been as magnified as it has been now. I can only hope that policy makers, and industries and civil society, you and me, all of us, can just become more responsible citizens of the planet,” she said. (IANS)
