October 01, 2020

The President of UN Economic and Social Council and Pakistan' Permanent Representative to the World Body Munir Akram has called for political will to achieve biodiversity goals.

Addressing the UN Biodiversity Summit, he said it is a biodiverse and hospitable planet that accommodated the evolution of the human species, providing nutrition, clean air, fresh water, natural medicines and bountiful raw materials.

The ECOSOC President said, unfortunately, in the modern era, we have severely abused nature.

Munir Akram said that impacts of climate change are visible and biodiversity loss will be equally devastating for the future of humanity.
