If Nature Could Draw a Map of the World | Karl Burkart | TEDxPorto

June 7, 2023
We’ve grown accustomed to seeing our world divided into countries and states, but there is another way to see and better understand the planet we call home. Karl Burkart unveils a new biogeographical framework developed at One Earth with the input of scientists and experts to delineate 185 discreet bioregions—or "nature's countries"—organized by grouping closely related terrestrial ecoregions. On the heels of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, which adopted a global target to protect and conserve 30% of lands and seas by 2030, the bioregional map invites us to rethink how we might organize collective action in the future to achieve such ambitious objectives. While the architecture of UN agreements is, of course, based on nation-states, nature organizes the world in a very different way. To truly achieve success in protecting our priceless natural resources and supporting the local communities that preserve critical ecosystem services, such as water provisioning and carbon flux (which sequesters away half of our global carbon emissions annually), we need to consider nature's architecture. Karl proposes a science-based approach to utilizing bioregions in allocating the huge amounts of capital required to protect and conserve nature at scale.
