Now is the time for urgent action to build a safer future for people and the planet.
We need to challenge governments to align the global response to this crisis and build back better by:
- Tackling the direct environmental drivers of increased pandemic risk, including combating wildlife trafficking and halting the high-risk wildife trade, as well as eliminating deforestation and conversion from agricultural supply chains.
- Supporting vulnerable communities affected by this crisis.
- Designing economic stimulus packages that ensure green and just recovery and increase investment in sustainable business models.
- Taking transformative decisions to halt and reverse biodiversity loss, including agreeing an ambitious post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
- Ensuring that a One Health approach - linking the health of humans, animals and our shared environment - is strengthened and integrated in relevant decision-making processes.
Protecting people from threats posed by zoonotic diseases requires us to protect the wellbeing of our planet. We must secure a New Deal for Nature and People
that sets nature on the path to recovery by 2030 and safeguards human health and livelihoods in the long-term.
