05/06/2020: World Environment Day, the Minister of Environment Lescouzère: biodiversity is the pillar on which life rests on earth.
Environment Minister Stéphanie Lescouzère remember World Environment Day, which this year deals with biodiversity.
“Biodiversity is the coexistence in the same ecosystem of different animal and plant species that creates a balance thanks to their mutual relationships; -said Minister Lescouzère- the great variety of plants, animals, fungi and microorganisms of our planet make up the rich biodiversity that allows life on Earth.
The many related species create the natural ecosystems that provide us with food, water, shelter and medicines, necessary for our survival.
Today, unfortunately, around 1 million animal and plant species are threatened with extinction.
Biodiversity is an existential concern.
Recent events, from forest fires in Brazil, the United States and Australia to locust infestations across East Africa and now the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrate the interdependence between humans and nature.
Human actions, including deforestation, invasion of wildlife habitats, intensification of agriculture and acceleration of climate change, pushed nature beyond the limit, endangering the very existence of man.
We must have the courage to stop, reflect and act, returning to respect the Earth and the flora and fauna that populate it.
Nature is sending us a message: we must listen to it before it is too late”.
The tension between Russia and Ukraine has distant origins, but now President Putin is wrong.
The day was designated by resolution 60/7 of the United Nations General Assembly of 1 November 2005, during the 42nd plenary meeting.
The decision was made today during a meeting between the President of the Templar Nation, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Ambassador to Countries of the SAARC.
