Today is #Halfearthday2021, a plan to protect 50% of the earth, to stop #biodiversity loss & prevent #climate change. Wow, a plan to #restore the planet: that's hopeful!? Unfortunately, not. There is good science showing this is the wrong direction... 🧵 (1/5) #COP26 #COP15
2/5. Every funder should know that if a Half Earth proposal lands on their desk, there will be social risks. Despite the cosy rhetoric, Fortress Conservation leads to #humanrights abuses. Protecting 50% of the globe could affect >1 billion ppl, per Schleicher et al., 2019
3/5. Ecologists, none the wiser, might consider this a price worth paying if species are protected from #extinction. It's a mistake made by Kim Stanley Robinson. The great myth is that people are bad for biodiversity, as shown by Ellis et al., 2021 👇…

1. Suppose an alien spaceship will land on earth next week.

After many light-years of travel through space, some friendly little green creatures decide to get out and stretch their legs on our planet.

What would they report home?

2. I guess their first description would be ecstatic.

Hidden in the fast, cold, and dark universe, they discovered a blue planet that brims with an incredible diversity of life, aided by ideal living conditions.

3. But:

Since the dawn of civilization, humanity has lost 83% of all wild mammals and half of all plants.

Of all the mammals on earth, 96% are livestock and humans, while only 4% are wild mammals.

Was mich gerade richtig wütend macht!
Seit Montag findet die #Weltnaturkonferenz #COP15 zu #Biodiversität statt.
Zum 15. (!) Mal treffen sich ca. 200 Nationen und beschließen??? NICHTS!
Und keins redet drüber, dazu ein kleiner Thread!
Wir befinden uns - neben all den anderen Krisen - gerade vorallem in einer #Zwillingskrise:Beide sind eng miteinander verknüpft, verstärken sich gegenseitig + viel zu viele Kipppunkte sind schon überschritten!
1) #Biodiversitätskrise
2) #Klimakrise (2/x)…
Gründe der #Biodiversitätskrise
-Zerstörung der natürlichen Lebensräume(Versiegelung, Abholzung)
-Landnutzungsänderungen(z.B. intens.Monokulturen, Urbanisierung, Skipisten)
-direkte Ausbeutung der Ressourcen wie Jagd & Überfischung
-Klimawandel (3/x) Image

Five years ago, I had barely slept for 2 weeks. Now I've recovered, and with the #Parisversaire today, I've been thinking about how we designed the #ParisAgreement – and how it is working today. A thread 1/16
We knew how big the task would be. We were all veterans of the UN negotiation process, and had lived through the trauma of #COP15 in Copenhagen. We knew we needed to take a new approach, one built on an integrated theory of human, organizational, and state behavior 2/16
The fundamental premise of the #ParisAgreement: it had to be a flexible legal framework, that could over time accommodate the changes in technologies, economies, & societies that would need to happen over the long-run for us to succeed & limit temperature rise 3/16

#Biodiversité : l’arche de Noé à la dérive

@AleksRankovic est l'invité de @CulturesMonde_ dans @franceculture

📢C'est maintenant !…
"COP15 pour la #biodiversité : il s'agit pour la gouvernance internationale de la biodiversité de rentrer enfin dans l'âge de la maturité. On est malheureusement encore très loin du compte" rappelle @AleksRankovic
30% de zones protégées: "il faut se méfier du quantitatif. On peut avoir 30% de parcs, mais si ce sont des passoires, le statut ne change rien. Il faut plus de coopération entre les pays pour que les statuts de protection soient renforcés" @AleksRankovic #biodiversité #COP15 Image

[EN DIRECT] Plateforme #Biodiversité 2020 !

Avec : @BasilevanHavre @UNBiodiversity et @AleksRankovic

En live sur :
YouTube👉 Image
Petit rappel sur ce qu’est la Convention sur la diversité biologique : l’une des 3 Conventions de Rio #CBD. La biodiversité, c’est la diversité au sein des espèces et entre les espaces ainsi que celle des écosystème. Image
On a échoué à atteindre nos objectifs de la décennie passée pour la #biodiversité #objectifsdAichi. Ils étaient exhaustifs mais sont restés incantatoires, sans mécanisme de suivi, sans moyens de mise en œuvre, faute d’avoir identifié les pressions sur la biodiversité. Image

** IDDRI assesment of the first orientations of the @UNBiodiversity #ZeroDraft **

➡️What are the priorities for negotiations and mobilization before #COP15 ?

Key messages below
(1/6) Image
The #zerodraft confirms #OEWG1 orientations: it displays ambition on most goals & targets, and contains chapters on implementation and responsibility and transparency mechanisms, that are fundamental for the consistency of the framework & its intended theory of change.

States & stakeholders mobilisation is essential for:
-ensuring that the highest ambition is reached
-reaffirming the importance of the implementation & transparency elements, to make sure that sufficient attention will be paid to these crucial elements in the coming months
