🌿 Why Preserve a Healthy Ecosystem for Tomorrow? 🌏
A healthy ecosystem is our natural capital! We could not live without it. Biodiversity is the key indicator of the health of our ecosystem.
We see that world population is projected to grow to 9.7 billion by 2050. This creates an increasing pressure to provide adequate healthcare, food and water for us.
Therefore, application of the One Health, EU Green Deal and Fit for 55 principles is really valuable to combat with the issues such as food security, climate change, environmental pollution, biodiversity, food safety, antimicrobial resistance and others and keep the ecosystem healthy.
Today nearly 75 percent of all emerging human infectious diseases in the past three decades originated in animals (zoonotic diseases), especially wildlife.
The primary drivers behind these zoonotic diseases are linked to human activities, including changes in ecosystems and land use, biodiversity loss, deforestation, intensified agriculture, antibiotic and pesticide usage, urbanization, wildlife destruction, and global travel, transportation and trade.
A collaborative, multidisciplinary approach is essential, covering environmental and ecosystem health, climate-aware investing, social sciences, ecology, wildlife, land use, and biodiversity.
Let's combine our efforts to ensure the well-being of animals, humans, and the environment. Together, we can secure a healthier ecosystem for generations to come!
