Building back better for nature and people to achieve the 2030 Agenda, through a transformational green recovery and recognising the right to a healthy environment
July 7, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
4-5.30 pm GMT – 12-1 pm NYC
Convened by BirdLife International.
The COVID19 pandemic has brought economic and social turmoil and tragedy, bringing a new dimension to risk and responsibility regarding nature. To achieve the 2030 Agenda, states must deliver transformational, green recovery packages (focusing on both finance and policy change) which include nature-based solutions to address health risks, climate change and biodiversity loss. The UN, 75 years on in a world transformed and impacted by environmental degradation, must equally focus on a healthy and sustainable environment, rebalancing our relationship with nature. Case studies and perspectives from different stakeholders will inform a facilitated discussion on “Protecting the planet and building resilience”.
