Interactive Dialogue 4: Protecting Our Planet And Combatting Climate Change
PDF File Size: 73 KB | Download   
Humanity’s central challenge for the 21st century is to develop economic, social and governance systems capable of ending hunger and poverty, achieving sustainable levels of production and consumption while living in harmony with our natural environment. In this regard, the new 2030 Agenda recognizes that climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time 1 and its adverse impacts undermine the ability of all countries to achieve sustainable development. The environment is one of the primary determinants of individual and community health, and exposure to physical, chemical and biological risk factors in the environment can harm human health in various ways. Compounded by climate change, the pressures on terrestrial and marine ecosystems and resources are major threats to the Earth’s biological life support systems, human well-being and human development. In addition, disasters pose a significant challenge for sustainable development. The annual losses from natural disasters now average US$250 billion to US$300 billion. Mortality and economic loss associated with extensive risks in low and middle-income countries are rising, driven by increasing exposure to hazards, high levels of inequality, rapid urban development and environmental degradation. Sustainable and equitable management of natural resources is indispensable.
