Nature is intricately linked to solving some of humanity’s most vexing challenges – securing enough food and water for a growing population, tackling climate change, buffering humanity from some of the worst impacts of a warmer and less predictable world, and ensuring a more just and prosperous future for all.
By diminishing nature, we are diminishing our resilience and our very future. This set of sessions takes a closer look at how protecting, restoring and sustainably managing nature can help us achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, especially those related to climate, health, security, water, jobs and livelihoods.
Session 4 – Nature for Prosperity
More than a third of humanity – 2.5 billion people – directly depend on nature for their livelihoods, including through fishing, farming and forestry. We cannot achieve our global goals in ending poverty unless we ensure healthy, functioning ecosystems. In this session, several keynote speakers focus on the various dimensions of nature-based livelihoods, and the constraints and pressures facing these livelihoods around the world. Lightning talks will present different solutions for securing nature-based livelihoods through new more inclusive, gender-balanced and just corporate supply chains, ecosystem restoration, market incentives, through finance and local action. A rapid round-table panel will identify underlying issues and key steps required going forward.
