Can Youth Halt the Loss of Biodiversity?

As we come to the end of the 2011-2020 decade on biodiversity, we have to acknowledge that still the rate of environmental damage is increasing.


At the end of The strategic plan of the convention on biological diversity (CBD) which comprise of 20 Aichi Biodiversity targets in 2020, it is expected to adopt the New Post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.


So far the commitments and actions towards environmental conservation have been promising and controlling the loss but requires a significant step up in commitment, and build synergies in both policy making and implementation. Despite the conventions, agreements, frameworks and legislations we have to acknowledge that much of the failure to mitigate bio diversity loss to date is due failure to implement the decisions. Therefore, it’s a time that we should double the efforts to tackle global biodiversity loss cause or else it would become the Earth’s sixth mass extinction on the coming years.
