Interview: China’s ecological stewardship key to restoring planetary health — UN environment official

Abstract : The ambitious initiatives China has rolled out to promote the congruity between economic growth and the environment will boost efforts to restore the planet's health amid human and climate induced threats, a senior UN Environment Program official told Xinhua on the eve of Earth Day.

NAIROBI, April 22 (Xinhua) — The ambitious initiatives China has
rolled out to promote the congruity between economic growth and the
environment will boost efforts to restore the planet’s health amid human
and climate induced threats, a senior UN Environment Program (UNEP)
official told Xinhua during an interview on the eve of Earth Day.

Levis Kavagi, an Africa coordinator at the UNEP, said China is at a
vantage position to make a positive contribution toward tackling the
ecological challenges currently facing humanity.

He hailed China’s support for multilateral initiatives aimed at
tackling these challenges that have worsened poverty, disease and
inequality.

As host of the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the
Convention on Biological Diversity, slated for October in the city of
Kunming, China is expected to reaffirm its commitment to global efforts
to conserve natural habitats, he said.

Kavagi believes China-led actions are critical to advancing a
low-carbon development that strengthens the resilience of ecosystems and
communities in the face of rising temperatures.

Partnerships are crucial to finding durable solutions to the triple
planetary crises of pollution, climate change and biodiversity loss that
have worsened food insecurity, water stress and instability, he said.

“All three are interconnected so there is more need for concerted effort than isolated piecemeal responses,” he added.

Speaking of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Kavagi said it is
complicating waste management challenges, while increasing community
vulnerability to impacts of climate change and reduced income from
tourism.

Conservation of iconic wildlife species might suffer amid declining
government revenue due to movement restrictions, he said, adding that
the pandemic has also slowed down bio-prospecting, worsening the
attendant loss of financial benefits to local communities.

He urged all nations to unite to defeat the pandemic and restore the planet’s health. Enditem
