Often times we hear people saying, "but we still have time", well, this is that time.
In what is labeled as the most important Biodiversity Conference, #COP15 must deliver and be the anchor/stepping stone towards the realization of the 2050 Vision of "Living in harmony with #Nature.
We cannot afford to fail this time like we did for the Aichi Targets.
Montreal has to lead the way for building back through restoration, ensuring equity and transparency in sharing benefits from the utilization of biological resources and promoting inclusion at all levels in biodiversity related issues.
Negotiations cannot be like business as usual, there's nothing usual about the rate of species lost over the past decade. We must see change and this has to start with Montreal.
For #people and #nature.
