A SIGNIFICANT MILESTONE

Negotiations at COP26 could and must result in immediate action to ensure that the climate goals of the Paris Agreement are achieved. The protection and restoration of nature plays a fundamental part in staying within the 1.5°c temperature limit and supporting biodiversity.

We must see world leaders put nature protection front and centre in their plans and actions to address the climate crisis, alongside rapid decarbonisation across all human activity.

FFI is calling for an end to the frustration of fruitless negotiations and discussions since Paris. We need immediate and effective action on climate change that puts nature at the heart of decision-making.

It is still within our gift to avert catastrophic climate change, but only with a fundamental transformation in the level of ambition, investment and action to deliver high-quality nature-based solutions and the rapid transition to a zero-carbon economy.

In order to avoid the worst effects of climate change, we have to ensure that global temperatures do not rise more than 1.5C above pre-industrial levels. Natural carbon sinks have a pivotal role to play in our efforts to limit emissions and remain below that critical threshold.

The stability of our climate is based on diverse and resilient ecosystems – a healthy planet, in other words. Species loss and habitat destruction not only exacerbate climate change, but also undermine our ability to absorb and adapt to its effects.

It is vital that we view this planetary emergency through the lens of the grassroots communities who are already struggling with the effects of a global climate and biodiversity crisis that threatens their very survival, and that we target support where it is needed most.
