Climate biodiversity along the way Cop 15 In Canada. 196 countries and more than 15,000 people are participating in the UN Conference on Biodiversity, which starts today in Montreal, Canada and ends on December 19. After climate change, Earth’s powers focus on protecting species and ecosystems. The challenge is to reach an agreement to save the Earth and the nature that lives on it. Almost an ultimatum, 1 million plant and animal species are now threatened with extinction. According to the UN, this is the most significant loss since the extinction of the dinosaurs.
Climate biodiversity at COP15 in Canada: Why does it matter?
Protecting climate and biodiversity is not limited to animal species. Ensuring the well-being of the Earth means ensuring the health and well-being of all who live on it, including humans. Since humanity’s existence is based on clean air, food, and a livable climate, all elements are controlled by the natural world. Not only that, there is also a need for change from an economic point of view. In fact, a large part of the GDP produced worldwide depends on the health of ecosystems: we are talking about almost 42 billion dollars.

“30 by 30”, what is it?
Conserving 30% of water and soil by 2030 is one of the most difficult and complex objectives. It was first proposed by some researchers in a prestigious scientific journal, but has since been gradually adopted by more than 100 countries, including many European Union countries. Times are very short, and in this sense, Cop15 is defined as an ultimatum to Earth. And the assessment report published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) the UN says there is a very short window left in which to reverse the course of environmental degradation too late.
