World fails to meet a single target set to save nature: report

Sep 16, 2020 15:06 IST

196 countries came together in Japan in 2010 to set out some goals to save the Earth as part of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. Some of the targets as part of the 10-year plan included preventing the extinction of threatened species, for instance. According to the United Nations' Global Biodiversity Outlook report, the world has failed to achieve any of the targets properly. Out of the 20 goals that were set, only six have been partially achieved, the report says. Some limited progress has been observed like preventing invasive species and conserving protected areas. However, biodiversity is being lost at an unprecedented rate and the pressures are only intensifying.
