INCLUSIVE CONSERVATION TO FIX OUR CLIMATE AND RESTORE BIODIVERISTY
THE UNMET CHALLENGE: CLIMATE CHANGE AND BIODIVERSITY LOSS
Current conservation efforts, while noble, are proving inadequate in the face of escalating climate change and biodiversity loss. The WWF's alarming report highlights a 60% decline in global wildlife populations since 1970, a clear indicator of biodiversity loss at an unprecedented scale. This crisis is further exacerbated by climate change, which poses additional threats to nature and our very existence worldwide. The existing conservation strategies, impeded by barriers such as insufficient funding and capacity, are struggling to keep pace with these growing challenges.
THE MONOPOLY OF CONSERVATION VOICES
A significant issue in the field of conservation is its concentration in the hands of a relatively small group of professionals. While their efforts are commendable, the magnitude of challenges posed by climate change and biodiversity loss demands a broader, more diverse coalition of conservationists.
BREAKING BARRIERS FOR WIDER INVOLVEMENT
One of the most pressing concerns is the systemic barriers faced by women, conservationists from minority groups, and those from underrepresented geographies. These individuals often encounter obstacles in advancing their conservation careers and having their voices heard in the global conservation dialogue. This lack of diversity not only hinders individual careers but also limits the scope of ideas and strategies necessary to tackle the intertwined issues of climate change and biodiversity loss effectively.
