4. SOUNDBITE (French) Emmanuel Macron, President of France:
“We decided to start this year with concrete actions in four priorities. First, on protection of land and marine species: to put the nature on the way to regeneration, we will protect in effective way 30 percent of land and 30 percent of seas. This is even more important, since if we do not act to protect the ecosystems, we cannot deliver on our climate commitments. Second, on agroecology, which is absolutely critical to the protection of environment, our food security, decreasing inequality and to the structural transformation of our collective development model. Third, the mobilization of private and public financing, which will be the backbone of the fight for the biodiversity and against the climate change and forth on the protection of tropical forest, the species and our health.”

“2021 must be the year to reconcile humanity with nature. Until now, we have been destroying our planet. We have been abusing it as if we had a spare one. Our current resource use requires almost two planets, but we only have one.”

“The world has not met any of the global biodiversity targets set for 2020, and biodiversity is facing a financing gap of 711 billion US dollars per year until 2030. Sustainable financing is essential if we are to transition away from polluting sectors.”

STORYLINE
“The main objective of the United Nations in 2021 is to build a true global coalition for carbon neutrality,” the UN secretary-General said at the One Planet Summit for Biodiversity on Monday (11 Jan).

Co-organized by France, the United Nations and World Bank, the One Planet Summit for Biodiversity brought together world leaders to commit action to protect and restore biodiversity. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the event was mostly virtual.

Opening the Summit, French President Emmanuel Macron, outlined four key priorities for action: protecting terrestrial and maritime ecosystems, to allow nature to regenerate; promoting agroecology to safeguard environment, strengthen food-security and reduce inequalities; mobilizing public and private financing, which would support both climate action and protect biodiversity; and reducing deforestation, especially tropical forests, to protect species and human health.

The Secretary-General Antonio Guterres noted that “2021 must be the year to reconcile humanity with nature. Until now, we have been destroying our planet. We have been abusing it as if we had a spare one. Our current resource use requires almost two planets, but we only have one.”

According to the World Economic Forum, emerging business opportunities across nature could create 191 million jobs by 2030, he added.

At the same time, with a financing gap of USD 711 billion per year until 2030 to meet global biodiversity targets, increased and sustained financing will be crucial to transition away from polluting sectors, Guterres said.

“The main objective of the United Nations in 2021 is to build a true global coalition for carbon neutrality,” Guterres said. "Every country, city and business must adopt an ambitious roadmap to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.”
