Biodiversity Sep 09, 2020
Human activities are destroying biodiversity at least 1,000 times faster than the background rates at which biodiversity loss happening as a natural phenomenon.
This biodiversity loss presents a major threat to hard-won development gains. It can make reduction in wild foods, reduced nutritional security, poorer pollination, and less productive and resilient agricultural systems. It can bring higher exposure to Agri-chemicals, reduced access to traditional medicines and lost opportunities for drug development, as well as translating into higher disease burdens.
Biodiversity loss can also make private sector investments riskier since many business models relay on access to natural ecosystems and areas of high biodiversity. And being associated with adverse impacts on biodiversity can be a reputational risk to businesses and affect their social license to operate.
As for climate change, biodiversity loss can hamper efforts to adapt to the impacts, exacerbate natural disasters, and reduce carbon storage.
Furthermore, biodiversity loss is hitting the poorest people first and hardest. Biodiversity underpins environmental goods and services that poor communities can afford to buy. Biodiversity loss is not just an environmental issue, but an impending development crisis.
