TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR OUR PLANET

CAN ANYTHING BE DONE?

The following three strategies have been identified as key in the fight to save our planet. The Connecting the Roots model embraces all three...




These involve reducing deforestation and systematically restoring forests and other ecosystems. If prioritised, nature-based solutions could provide one third of the net reductions in greenhouse emissions required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, and create 191 million jobs by 2030 (World Economic Forum).




While making up less than 6% of the world's population, indigenous people are stewards of 80% of the planet's vital biodiversity, and nature managed by them is declining less rapidly than elsewhere. It is time to heed their voices, reward their knowledge and respect their rights. 


 

The effects of climate change fall heavily on women, and they make up 80% of those displaced by climate change. Women are the backbone of agriculture, key defenders of natural resources, and their representation in national parliaments has been linked directly to the signing of climate action agreements. Women must have a seat at the table and play a role in the fight.
