Nature Conservation

Pillar of Action

In order to reverse the biodiversity crisis and stabilize the Earth’s climate system, we must protect and conserve 50% of the world’s lands and seas. Remaining land habitats store nearly 2 trillion tonnes of carbon and absorb one-quarter of annual CO2 emissions. Expanding Indigenous land rights is essential, alongside a moratorium on deforestation and a global effort to restore 350 million hectares of forests on degraded land, providing the necessary carbon removal to achieve the 1.5°C goal.
