The fight against biodiversity loss is shaping up to become one of the biggest international challenges of the coming decades.
The unprecedented loss of biodiversity currently at play at the international level will have direct consequences on human lives. Of course, the fact that one million species are threatened with extinction over the coming decades and centuries, albeit preventable to some extent, is cause for immense worry. Yet, the destabilization of our ecosystems will also come with profound economic and social repercussions. Pollination, for instance, constitutes a token of rich biodiversity and more than 75% of food crop types throughout the world rely on it.
