Urgent and transformative action is needed to address the complex, interconnected challenges facing society today, including climate change, water scarcity, food security, poverty, and biodiversity loss. Putting nature at the heart of any solution is increasingly recognised as the foundation for securing climate resilience and sustainable development. No one organisation holds the solution, and siloed and fragmented approaches cannot address the challenges at scale.
Collaboration between sectors towards common societal goals is essential to bring the diverse perspectives, complementary skills and resources to enable the systemic change and innovation required to address the challenges. Collaboration between governments, financial institutions, companies (both within and across different industries and their supply chains), and civil society organisations is vital to drive and champion the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of biodiversity.
