Wonderful coverage of what findings mean for equity & development in South Africa & how SA has some of the potential solutions if we could pull our collective heads out of the sands of the 20th century

Anything we can do about the new scary report? Absolutely, says “It’s going to take some pretty big changes, but they are absolutely possible, and they can absolutely change this trajectory."

Below is my favorite figure in the Global Assessment Summary for Policymakers. While media fixates on the extinction crisis part, if you read the SPM, there is *solid* discussion of solutions within this complex system.

The Report identifies changes in land and sea use as the most significant direct driver of changes in nature. To halt and reverse loss and the degradation of nature, we need more sustainable practices and food systems.

Read this insightful and delightful response to scepticism about the thorough and rigorous approach taken to estimate rates, given known and unknown uncertainties faced by team. Kudos and everyone involved.

Selected targets are those where current evidence and target wording enable assessment of the consequences for target achievement of trends in nature and nature’s contribution to people

Uncertain relationship: the relationship between trends in nature and/or nature’s contributions to people and achieving the target were found to be too uncertain to assess

None of the targets scored ‘Full support’ (that is, good status or substantial positive trends at a global scale).

Poor/Declining support: poor status or substantial negative trends at a global scale Unknown: insufficient information to score the status and trends

Partial support: the overall global status and trends are good or positive but insubstantial or insufficient, or there may be substantial positive trends for some aspects but negative trends for others, or the trends are positive in some geographic regions but negative in others

Clear and thoughtful from on how the came to 1 mil species at extinction risk. TLDR: a LOT of careful field & modeling science behind this robust number.

A key finding of our chapter of the Global Assessment: Biodiversity loss is not only a tragic loss of species, but a threat to our human well-being. Loss of biodiversity and ecosystems will undermine progress towards 80% (35 out of 44) of assessed SDG targets.
