This is a make-or-break decade. If we continue with business-as-usual, by 2030, the global commons will reach a tragic state. We have already crossed or are about to cross safe planetary boundaries of some of key earth ecosystems. In order to protect the global commons, we must step up our focus on underlying drivers; i.e. we need to work in sectors like food and agriculture, energy, transport, and with partners such as the private sector and cities around the world. We need to also ensure global and local actions are mutually reinforcing.
AAAS and Hitachi Ltd. are pleased to present Time for Transformational Change in Global Environmental Policy with Naoko Ishi, CEO and Chairperson, Global Environmental Facility (GEF). GEF is the largest public funder of programs to benefit the global environment.
