UN Seeks New Contract for Nature to Tackle Hunger and Climate Change

UNITED NATIONS – United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has called for a “new contract for nature” to address global challenges related to land degradation, such as forced migration, hunger and climate change.
Guterres appealed on Thursday in a message to commemorate World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought.
“Through international action and solidarity, we can expand land restoration and nature-based solutions for climate action and the benefit of future generations. By doing so, we can meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and leave no one behind,” he said.
Human activities primarily cause desertification and climatic variations, with more than three billion people, routinely affected.
Drylands, which cover more than a third of the planet’s land surface, are incredibly prone to over-exploitation and inappropriate land use, such as overgrazing and poor irrigation practices.
This year’s observation highlights sustainable production and consumption with food, Feed Fibre as the catchphrase; the goal is to get people everywhere to cut down on food waste, shop at local markets and trade clothes instead of always buying new clothes.
The head of the UN office, which oversees a global treaty to prevent land degradation, said that although coronavirus disease (COVID-19) may have temporarily restricted some freedoms, such as traveling at will, people still have freedom of choice.
“In our globalized world, the food we eat, the food for our livestock and the fiber for clothing impacts the earth thousands of kilometers away,” said Executive Secretary of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, Ibrahim Thiaw. “Each of us has the power to protect the earth for every choice we make in our daily lives. We can still choose to protect nature. By doing so, we protect our future.”
The UN scribe noted that it reversed land degradation, such as the Great Green Wall in the Sahel region of Africa, launched by the African Union (AU) in 2007.
Through the initiative, trees are planted from Senegal to Djibouti, to restore land and increase food security, transforming lives and livelihoods along the way.
“Such efforts recover biodiversity, reduce the effect of climate change and make communities more resilient,” said the UN chief. “In total, the benefits outweigh the costs ten times.”
Globally, 75 percent of the land is degraded, according to the president of the UN General Assembly, Tijjani Muhammad-Bande.
“As land degrades, resources are depleted. Therefore, the most vulnerable people are more exposed to poverty and hunger; with women, small farmers, indigenous communities and children disproportionately affected,” he said.
Muhammad-Bande believes that an “urgent paradigm shift” is needed, focusing on protection, sustainability and restoration; So he called for a renewed commitment to safeguarding the planet.
