Geneva Global Initiative calls on Governments and multilateral institutions to develop more integrated and concrete preparedness strategies for whole-society responses

GENEVA, 6-May-2019 — /EPR GOVERNMENT NEWS/ — The UN IPBES’ 2019 Global Assessment Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services is another one in a long line of warnings about the state of our planet. It should be clear that we face multiple interacting environmental stresses, and these are intensifying. Profound environmental, economic and political changes will likely define the next decade and beyond.

“Now is the time to bring attention to how we handle the risk of a large-scale systemic failure if all mitigation efforts fall flat and sustainable goals are not met in time”, said David Korowicz, GGI’s Director for Risk and Response.

The GGI is hosting an on-the-record teleconference to further discuss this, open to journalists and parties focused on these issues on Wednesday, May 8, at 4:00 pm Central European Time. The call is open to the public, but RSVP is required at Rachel@morrisseypr.com.
