Michelle Cook said: “Indigenous peoples are seeking basic accountability for indigenous human rights violations emerging from extractive industries backed by banks and financial institutions. The PRB banks have a role and responsibility in protecting indigenous peoples right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent, and providing remedy for abuses they contribute to through their business relationships. Time will tell whether the PRBs will live up to its promises in aligning with the Paris Climate Agreement and the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). As deadly infernos rage in the Western United States and the skies turn red blotting out the sun, the magnitude of climate change is written across a burning atmosphere for all to see. We don’t have time for hesitation from the PRBs,” External link

Moira Birss said: “The Amazon - one of the most critical ecosystems to maintain climate stability and home to hundreds of distinct Indigenous nations - is fast nearing a tipping point, after which it will no longer be a rainforest. Yet PRB banks continue to finance the expansion of oil drilling and agribusiness there, running roughshod over Indigenous rights and ignoring climate impacts. PRB banks need to take meaningful action before it’s too late for the Amazon and the entire planet,” External link

Baroness Scotland said: “Without urgent action on how we use and steward our lands, we cannot hope to achieve the targets set out in the Paris Agreement on climate change. Given the impact of COVID-19 our countries have a narrow window of opportunity to establish a ‘new normal’ in the way we interact with our natural environment. Part of this must means a deliberate and systematic focus on a ‘green recovery’ that incorporates climate-smart practices in the way we grow our crops, raise livestock, and use our land resources” External link

Ibrahim Thiaw stated: “Youth make up 60% of the Commonwealth population. This is 1 out of 3 youth in the world. Policies that could enable them to jumpstart green land-based jobs such as agriculture, ecological restoration or in the supply chain hold promise for both building back better and living in harmony with nature. In addition, the proposed ‘Living Lands charter’ could drive momentum towards a fair, inclusive and sustainable future” External link

Элизабет Мрема said: “Nature-based solutions could offer immediate and cost-effective long-term benefits to mitigate climate change, to address increasing threats to biodiversity and to restore degraded land. Nature-based solutions have the potential to not only reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and sequester carbon, they can also build resilience to climate change, as well as provide water filtration, flood buffering, and disaster risk reduction while improving soil health and biodiversity” External link

Ousmane Dione said: “The agricultural sector is crucial to Ethiopia’s economy as it accounts for 45 percent of total output and employs nearly 80 percent of the labor force. While encouraging results have been achieved so far, more work is needed to address remaining challenges and accelerate productivity gains, reduce exposure to erratic climatic conditions, decrease land degradation and enhance the natural resource base on which the sector depends,” External link

Susan Graham says: “We’ve got 2 billion hectares of degraded land, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is still increasing, and we’re still losing biodiversity at a rate that is estimated to be more than 10 times higher than it’s been in the last 10 million years, which just gets me every time,” “And so, we’re spurred on by these things” External link

الكسندر لي says: “Many of the same individuals that routinely seek to downplay the impacts of climate change have written articles understating the biodiversity loss crisis,” “Denialists have sought to obfuscate the magnitude of both extinctions and loss of bio-abundance” External link

mongabay Monday, September 14, 2020 4:33:00 PM CEST

الكسندر لي says: “The problem is most of the losses are not the big ‘exciting’ species but smaller and less charismatic ones in areas that lost the big exciting things years ago,” “We are now reaching critical loss of habitat for many species in the tropics in places like the Philippines and eastern Brazil. It is in these places that the next wave of extinctions is taking place” External link

الكسندر لي says: “The land sparing and abandonment we have seen in the temperate zone has come about because we have outsourced environmental harm elsewhere,” “These include countries lauded for their domestic environmental success. For example, Japan is still heavily forested but has for timber. Norway fuels forest loss in Amazonia for soybean to feed fish and cattle. Most people remain ignorant of these global teleconnections and their impacts on biodiversity” External link

Ibrahim Thiaw says: “Financing income-generating activities linked to the land, typically the main asset the poorest people have, is perhaps, the most cost-effective way to pursue peace, security, development and good health. What’s more, the achievements reported here are from the Sahel where soils are not very rich. This suggests restoring land has the potential to transform lives worldwide and to mitigate the global environmental threats we face today,” External link
